Welcome to the online application for Germantown Friends School!

You will also be able to log in later to review the application requirements and check to see if all of the required documents have been received. 


Application Fee 

Once you have completed your child's application, you will be prompted to pay a $45 application fee. GFS accepts major credit cards (MasterCard and Visa) as well as eChecks.

International students should apply for Upper School admissions through the SSAT Standard Application Online (SAO). The international application fee is $100.00 USD.
