The steps for applying for admission to Beaver are outlined below.

STEP 1: Inquire online

Beaver uses Ravenna for our online inquiry and application. If you already have a Ravenna account, simply log in and “Explore” Beaver. If you do not have a Ravenna account, click the “Inquire” button below to fill out our inquiry form and we’ll send you information about Beaver.


STEP 2: Learn more about Beaver

Beaver will host Admission Information Events in the fall. Please join us for any of these optional information sessions to learn more about Beaver and the application process. Registration is required through your Ravenna account.

STEP 3: Interview

A tour and interview are required parts of the admission process and must be scheduled by December 15, 2023. Tours and interviews are offered from October 2, 2023, until February 2, 2024. Once you have started an application you can schedule your interview through Ravenna.  If all appointments are booked please call the Admission Office at (617) 738-2725.

  • Please schedule your visit as soon as possible.  
  • Your application does not need to be completed in order to schedule your interview.
  • Please call the Admission Office to schedule siblings or if you have any questions.

At least one parent or caregiver should accompany the applicant. The interview includes separate conversations with the applicant and parent(s)/caregiver(s). These interviews are an opportunity for us to get to know the student/family and for you to get to know more about Beaver. You can expect the visit to take about two hours.
