How to Apply

FILL OUT AN INQUIRY FORM

We know it’s routine, but this is where the wheels of admission start turning. This form is the first step in getting to know Mercersburg and Mercersburg getting to know you. 

SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW

There’s no reason to stress—we promise! This is just a conversation where an admission counselor can learn about you and where you can ask questions. 

The interview is a critical part of the admission process. It’s an opportunity for your admission counselor to have a one-on-one conversation with you to gain a better understanding of your interests and character. Following the interview, we invite your parents or any other guests to join the conversation and ask any questions.

Interviews can be scheduled by contacting the Admission Office at 717-328-6173 or admission@mercersburg.edu. Appointment times are typically available on weekdays in the morning or afternoon.

Please note: in this unusual year, we are requiring international students to submit their TOEFL scores and the Student Biographic Profile portion of the Standard Application Online (SAO) before scheduling an interview. If the TOEFL or other language proficiency tests are unavailable to you, please contact the Admission Office at 717-328-6173 or admission@mercersburg.edu.

COMPLETE ANY REQUIRED STANDARDIZED TESTING 

We have a testing-flexible policy this year because of COVID-19. 

SUBMIT THE STANDARDIZED APPLICATION ONLINE (SAO)

Simple for us, simple for you—it’s the only application we accept. Be aware that the SAO includes a transcript and teacher recommendations.

DEADLINE: JANUARY 31
