Meridian serves students in grades 6 through 12. We accept new students in grades 6 through 10. Applicants for 9th grade must successfully complete at least a year-long algebra course by the end of 8th grade. 10th grade applicants will only be considered if there is a strong alignment between their course of study and Meridian's courses.

If you would like to receive information about Meridian Academy submit an inquiry form here. You'll be notified of major events at our school.

Applicants join us for a half-day morning visit hosted by a Meridian student. During their time here they get to see classes and have an interview. Parents also have the option to schedule a conversation with a member of the admissions committee and/or to sit in on classes.  Please make this appointment as soon as you decide to apply.

The parent and student portions of the application must be submitted prior to the applicant's half-day visit. The parent application should be accompanied by a $40 application fee. The fee will be waived for families who cannot afford it. Please call Meridian for a waiver fee.

We accept ISEE, SSAT, MCAS, and other standardized exam results. For the ISEE and SSAT, please have them mailed to your home and then forward a copy to us or upload it through Ravenna. Your school may also submit these materials on your behalf.
