Secondary School Placement
Our secondary school placement process has been designed expressly for our VIIth Form (9th Grade) students. We work closely with each family beginning in the Spring Term of the VIth Form (8th Grade) year. The goal is to obtain the best possible fit for each young graduate to continue to grow and develop mind, body and character. We work with students, families, teams of teachers and secondary school admission officers in order for our graduates to find and experience the best secondary years possible.
Rumsey offers workshops for students and parents examining and preparing for the various aspects of the secondary school admission process. We meet in large and small groups, with students and parents as well as individually to determine the strengths, talents and needs of each family. Our emphasis is on advising and guidance.
In addition, so that the we have a complete understanding of the cultures and demands of secondary schools, we visit over thirty schools each year and over sixty secondary schools from coast to coast regularly visit our campus. Rumsey has relationships with secondary schools that date over 112 years and we are proud to be a part of the success our graduates have in secondary school.
Rumsey students are uniquely prepared for the secondary school search and the breadth of our students' offers of admission. Our graduates continually earn places at the most prestigious secondary schools across the nation.

"The past year has been so special and challenging. Although our daughter is in distance learning, our family can still feel closely connected with Rumsey. Especially for her secondary school application, with your team's great effort, everything went smoothly and in order. Every communication from your office clearly introduced the issues to finish. Your guidance on the application timeline and action provided our family strong support and really calmed our anxiety." -Jasmine P'21
