  • Come to Campus!

    See the Watkinson community in action! Prospective students are welcome to come for a tour and/or spend the day with a current student. Lunch (the best school lunch around!) is on us.
  • Interview With Us.

    Student and parent interviews are an important part of the application process. Interviews can take place on the same day as your tour or day visit, or at a separate time. Call 860-236-5618 to schedule your visit and interview.
  • Submit Your Online Application.

    There are two online application options (see the blue buttons above); applicants need to complete only one of the two applications. The priority deadline for either application is February 1st.

    If you choose to complete the Watkinson application, please also send the Records Release Form and the Confidential Teacher Recommendation Forms to your current school so that they can be completed and returned to Watkinson.
  • Submit Your Financial Aid Application.

    If applying for financial aid, this application is due February 1.
  • Register for the SSAT.

    (Applicants for Grades 9 or above only)
    If you have already taken the PSAT or SAT, these scores can be submitted instead of the SSAT. Our School code for the SSAT is 8050. Visit to register.
