How to Apply

We’re looking for students who present strong evidence of purpose, maturity, academic ability, integrity, good conduct and the potential for success at Oglethorpe. The admission process is selective, but unlike some other schools, we are looking for reasons to include you, not exclude you. Can you demonstrate academic achievement in your high school courses, including appropriate courses in English, social studies, mathematics and science? Does your involvement in your school, your job and your community reflect your potential to make a life, make a living and make a difference?

We’ll determine your admission by evaluating:

  • Completed application form
  • Official transcript of high school work
  • SAT or ACT scores (Our SAT code is 5521. Our ACT code is 0850.)
  • Recommendation Form and/or Letter of Reference
  • Application Essay
  • Portfolios & Videos (optional)
  • Interviews (optional)
