When do private school decisions come out?

Last updated:

Private school decision dates vary by school and region, so it’s always best to check the school’s website and ask its admissions representatives directly.

In general, U.S. schools with a traditional January application deadline most commonly send acceptance letters in March, but some notices arrive as early as late February and as late as April. In contrast, Canadian schools often communicate decisions in November.

Schools with rolling admissions also have unique notification timelines.
