Application Process

The deadline for 9th grade applicants for the 2017-2018 school year was December 15th, 2016. 8th grade students are still encouraged to apply, though the application will be considered late. DeMatha has met its enrollment goal for the Class of 2021, thus late applicants, if accepted, may be placed on a wait list for upcoming academic year.

Transfer applicants for the 2017-18 academic year are considered via a rolling admissions policy.
