Applying to Dawson

The Dawson admissions process is as personalized as a Dawson education.

First and foremost, we want to get to know your family and your child. The admission process begins with a visit to our campus to tour our school and meet our team. After visiting with us, families are encouraged to apply online and set up an on-campus assessment. As you navigate through the process, remember that the Dawson admissions team is here to partner with you every step of the way.
