For Sibling Families* only:
Julia Morgan School for Girls understands the benefits of having daughters in the same family attend the School. A sibling, like all applicants, will be accepted based on the admission committee's determination that the child will be successful at JMSG. 

Siblings who want to apply early need to complete:
  • Ravenna application by the January 17, 2020: online application, student and parent questionnaires, teacher recommendation, and transcripts
  • ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) no later than January 17, 2020
  • Decisions mailed: Thursday, February 20, 2020
  • Response due: The family’s response to an offer of acceptance must be made by Thursday, February 27, 2020, before 10:00am
Note: If the sibling family declines to enroll by February 27, upon written request to the Admission Office, the applicant can be reconsidered for admission with the full applicant pool and notified on March 19, 2020.

If the family applied for flexible tuition under early decision and the school is able to accommodate their request, the family will be awarded a “provisional” flexible tuition award at the time of acceptance.

If the sibling is accepted, and provided with a provisional flexible tuition award, but declines to enroll by Febrary 27, the flexible tuition award will be rescinded. If the family decides to be reconsidered for notification in March there is no guarantee that the same flexible tuition funding will be available if student is accepted.
