Gravitas Admissions Application Steps

After the initial inquiry/referral stage, when a parent/guardian is ready to assist their student in applying to Gravitas, they will complete the following steps:

1) Create a Parent Portal account at the following site (be sure to write down your user login and password information for future reference) 

2) From that account, begin the Gravitas application. Select Gravitas: A Global Extension of The Stony Brook School and complete the admissions application form. Please note there is an admissions application fee ($75 for domestic students and $150 for international students).

3) Once you have submitted the application form, you will have access to the application checklist and you will begin uploading the following required items: The Student Essays; the Parent Statement; the three most recent years' grade reports/transcripts; an English teacher recommendation; a Math teacher recommendation; a counselor/principal recommendation; and SSAT (testing is currently optional). Use the SSAT code 2900 for Gravitas. Students for whom English is not spoken in the home will need to submit TOEFL or equivalent English language exam scores. The minimum score for admission is a 70 or equivalent, and students who score between 70-99 or equivalent will be required to enroll in the Gravitas ESL program for an additional cost. If you or recommenders experience challenges uploading any materials or have questions, please email gravitas@sbs.org.

4) Schedule a 30-minute admissions interview with the director of admissions, Mrs. Bieneme, by emailing her at gravitas@sbs.org.

5) Upload or email to gravitas@sbs.org any additional information, materials or documents that you would like to share beyond what is required.

If you plan to apply for aid to attend Gravitas, please do so as soon as possible after deciding to apply for admission.
