Ravenna is a web-based admission system that allows you to efficiently apply to PS-12 private schools.
From exploring schools through decisions, you can track the status of your applications online. Some schools may use Ravenna for their entire application, while some may ask you to complete certain application materials with Ravenna and others in another system. Other Ravenna features include event scheduling and decision notification.
To begin your family’s application, go to Ravenna and create an account. Be sure to create this account using an email address you will have access to throughout the entire admission season, as this will be your primary email contact with the school(s).
After you have created your account, you can view a list of schools in your area using Ravenna. If you would like to explore a school, you can view their application process and sign up for events. If you are in a region with multiple schools, you can choose to apply to one school now and add other schools later. Note that once you have chosen to explore or apply, the school will be aware of your interest.
In some regions, schools choose to share forms. These shared forms, such as essays or teacher evaluations, make the process easier for you and reduce the amount of time needed to complete an application. Shared (or common) forms are clearly marked so be sure not to use a specific school’s name in any of the answers to those questions.
With Ravenna, you can easily send forms electronically to those who will complete the form on the applicant’s behalf. The most common form is a teacher evaluation or recommendation. Simply enter the teacher’s name and email address in Ravenna, and the teacher will receive an email with a secure link to the form. You can also print a copy of the form if the school requires it.
If you ever have a question about Ravenna and your application, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we are happy to answer your inquiry by phone, we do require that all support inquiries come first via the email address you used to create your Ravenna account. It is important we validate access to student accounts to protect your privacy. This will ensure your family’s information remains secure.
