The first step in the admission process is to complete and submit an Online Inquiry Form.
Families begin the Hamlin admission process by joining us for a weekday tour.
In addition to our weekday tours, there will be a variety of events throughout the admission season which will give you the opportunity to get to know our program and community.
The process comes to a close in mid-March when decision letters are mailed by independent elementary schools in San Francisco. Families will then have a week of quiet reflection to consider their options.
The Hamlin School admits students of any race, color, religion, disability, citizenship status, sexual orientation, gender expression, and national or ethnic origin and accords to them all the privileges, programs, and activities at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, citizenship or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial assistance programs, athletic and other School-administered programs.
Gender Inclusion at Hamlin
You may be wondering why gender inclusion is relevant and important at an all girls’ school. Hamlin students identify and express their authentic selves in many different and beautiful ways. At Hamlin, we believe that gender is defined by how one self-reports and lives. Thus, if a family is raising a child as a girl and the child identifies as such, we would accept her application to Hamlin regardless of assignment at birth.
If a family is raising a child who was assigned female at birth and comes to understand their gender as non-binary, then the child would be welcome to apply.
