The admission decision

The admission committee reviews each application thoughtfully and thoroughly. To read in-depth about admission decisions and admission philosophy, click here.
Each applicant will receive one of three decisions: a letter of acceptance, placement in the wait pool, or denial for admission. If your application is accepted, you will need to complete the online enrollment contract and deposit within three weeks. The Admission Office will stay in close contact with applicants placed in the wait pool. If you receive a deny letter, then it was decided that Gordon was not a good match.
Families will be notified about admission decisions during the first week of March.
