Apply to RHP
We look forward to working with you to make applying to RHP as easy as possible. The purpose of the admission process is to identify a good fit between school and student in order to bring together a student body committed to personal and community growth.
To listen to independent school parents about choosing an independent school, why teachers make a difference, thriving in an independent school, the importance of community, and the benefits of an academically challenging school go to the National Association of Independent Schools website.
Our goal at RHP is to enroll young people, grades 6-12, who demonstrate academic ability and motivation, intellectual curiosity, and good citizenship. In making its decision, the Admission Committee considers:
A student's past school record;
Recommendations from teachers and other adults;
The results of the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE);
Evidence of talent and interest in outside activities, such as leadership, artistic strength, athletic ability, and community involvement.
Before you apply, we invite you to attend one of the school's Open House dates to meet teachers, parents, and current students, and learn more about RHP's outstanding programs and community.
Complete the "Application for Admission" and "Candidate Questionnaire" forms and submit them with the application fee of $125. Make checks payable to Rolling Hills Prep School. Send forms and check to: One Rolling Hills Prep Way, San Pedro, CA 90732.
Register for the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) and request that the scores be sent to Rolling Hills Prep School. Click here to register with the Educational Records Bureau or by mail. The test should be taken as soon as possible so that we have the scores as part of the package. Please contact our Admission Office with questions or to request more information.
Upon receipt of your "Application for Admission," we will contact you to schedule a date for your student to spend the day at RHP going to classes with one of our current students. At that time we will also make an appointment for a parent interview. If you have any questions please contact Ryan Tillson, who will be happy to set up a private tour or additional appointment.
