2021-2022 Admissions

The lottery took place on March 10, 2021, and results have been shared with applicants. If you applied for your child and you have not received an email, please send an email to

We continue to accept applications AFTER the lottery. Applications received after the lottery will be added to the grade level wait list in the order received. All grades have waitlists. Preview evenings were held in January and February. 

We accept applications for students in Kinder through 9th grade. Due to the rigor of the International Baccalaureate program in high school, the Meridian Board of Directors has, for the past several years, determined to limit the enrollment to only students who attended the prior year. We anticipate that policy going forward into the fall of 2021.

Per the Meridian School board of directors, enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year in grades 7th through 9th closed October 9, 2020. All other grades continue to enroll as space becomes available during the year.



Access the 2021-2022 application here. 

See the General Overview of Application and Enrollment Process.

Applications do NOT roll over from one year to the next. If your child does not get a spot in one year, a new application is needed for the following school year. The applications are named with the corresponding school year.
