Dates & Deadlines

APPLICATION UPDATE - MARCH 2020
In an effort to encourage social distancing for our school community members, The Bay School of San Francisco Admission Office will not be sending admission decision letters by mail this year. All admissions decisions will be emailed on Friday, March 20 after 4:00pm. In accordance with the Principles of Good Practice of Bay Area Admissions Directors, no member of any BAAD school community will initiate contact with a family between the time of admission notification and the enrollment deadline. Bay Area Admissions Directors have agreed that this is a decision-making time for your family. Along with all BAAD schools, we adhere to the enrollment deadlines of Thursday, March 26th at 12:00 p.m. for Flexible Tuition enrollment agreements and Friday, March 27th at 12:00 p.m. for full tuition enrollment agreements.
