Sidwell Friends School is one of the DC area independent schools using a web-based application called Ravenna for the submission of online applications.  Through Ravenna, you will be able to register for an Open House, Information Session or Tour, electronically request teacher recommendations, submit your application online, and track your application progress.

The recommendation forms are common forms that are shared among multiple schools. This means that you will only need to complete these common forms once and then electronically submit them to the schools that use Ravenna or alternatively print the forms and mail them to schools that don’t use Ravenna.

New users will need to create an account with Ravenna. Keep your login and password handy: they are your gateway to the entire application process. Once you have created your account select Sidwell Friends School to begin the application process. Proceed by uploading all required admission materials, as Ravenna guides you through the application process. Click here to view a brief introduction of the Ravenna system.
