The Admission Process

 We felt the warmth of a community—one that would help our daughter learn, develop friendships, and grow both academically and socially. We were impressed by the efforts of the admissions team in ensuring that we are the right fit for each other.


Nashoba Brooks School seeks qualified students who bring a variety of abilities, backgrounds, and interests to the School community. During the admission process, we give careful consideration to the ways in which a student may benefit from and contribute to our program. The Admission Committee reviews each student’s qualifications, assessing developmental readiness, academic potential, and achievement.

We are currently accepting applications for select grades on a rolling basis for the 2024-2025 school year. Contact our admission office at 978-369-4591, or email us at admission@nashobabrooks.org, to learn more about the spaces we have available.
