Character Skills Snapshot:
Choate’s admission process is holistic and, consistent with our mission, places a premium on character as well as excellence. As such, the admission committee invites applicants to complete the Character Skills Snapshot which provides additional insight on their candidacies. Although this new online assessment tool is not required, because it illuminates strength and potential in important non-cognitive areas, we do strongly recommend it.
The Admission Committee gives full consideration to all completed applications that arrive by the deadline.
Admission decisions will be available online. Late applicants will receive due consideration.
Admitted students are asked to notify the Admission Office of their enrollment decision.

It does not discriminate on these bases in the administration of its admission process, educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, or other school-administered programs.
