Entrance Exam

All applicants are required to sit for OLMA’s entrance exam.  In addition to providing a current assessment of a student’s overall academic acumen, exam results will be used to select academic scholarship recipients, as well as to place incoming students in appropriate level courses.

There are three entrance exam dates:  *Saturday, November 16, 2019; *Saturday, December 7, 2019; and **Saturday, January 11, 2020.  After this date, entrance exams will be by appointment only (pending availability).  Please note that applicants must test by December 7, 2019, to be considered for Early Admissions.  You may schedule your exam date by clicking here.

Shadow Day

Young women in Grades 7 or 8 who are interested in experiencing OLMA’s academics, athletics, service and sisterhood programs first hand, are encouraged to shadow a current student for a day.  There are two ways to shadow — and we recommend that students do both.

The first is as part of a large group for a day of fun as part of the OLMA Sisterhood.  Our 2019 group shadow day will be held on Thursday, November 7, 2019 – for 8th-grade students.  Another one will be scheduled in the spring for 7th-grade students.  Take a look at the video below for a preview of what you can expect.  To register for our group Shadow Day, CLICK HERE.

The second way to experience life at OLMA is during a one-on-one shadow day.  These can be scheduled for any time throughout the school year.  Shadows are matched with an OLMA freshman and experience a typical day as an OLMA student.  It’s a lot of fun and our shadows are treated to lunch free of charge in the OLMA Cafe. Simply contact us and we will set it up, or CLICK HERE and we will be in touch.

Transfer Admissions
