Apply to Wye

We want your great mind!

At Wye River Upper School we offer rolling admissions. Families are invited to complete an online application for their student at any time of year. For students transferring mid-year, we issue credit based on prior transcripts, and tuition is prorated based on student date of entry. For students applying for the following school year, Wye River encourages a soft deadline of February 1 (in the year prior) for best consideration. The following steps will help guide you through the admissions process. Wye River Upper School encourages applications from and admits students of any racial, ethnic or religious background. Its programs and policies are applied with equal consideration to all of its applicants and students. If you have any questions please contact Nicole Sophocles.
