The Gravitas Application Process

Thank you for your interest in applying to Gravitas. You can choose to apply during our Priority Admissions Round (Deadline: January 15, 2023), our Standard Admissions Round (Deadline: March 15, 2023), or via our Rolling Admissions process (applications accepted through July 15, 2023). Note: After the Priority and Standard Rounds, students will be enrolled and awarded need-based financial aid based on the availability of space and funds.

Gravitas offers two options for applying. Applicants can use the Standard Application Online (SAO) or our customized SchoolAdmin application by completing the following 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 SchoolAdmin Parent Portal account. 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 submit the Gravitas application form, you will have access to the Applicant Checklist by logging back into the SchoolAdmin Parent Portal, where you will upload the following required materials: The Student Essays; the Parent Statement; the three most recent years' grade reports/transcripts; and, if available, recommendation forms from an English teacher and a Math teacher in the current academic year. You must request the teacher recommendation forms through the Applicant Checklist in the SchoolAdmin Parent Portal. 

Notes about Testing

Admissions testing is optional for this cycle, but you are welcome to add SSAT scores to the Applicant Checklist if you desire. Students whose first language is not English are required to upload scores from the TOEFL or an equivalent English language test (i.e. DuoLingo) to their Applicant Checklist. Please note that the minimum TOEFL 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. 

4) To schedule the required Student Admissions Interview, please select one 30-minute time slot on this calendar at least two days in advance but no more than two weeks in advance of the applicant's desired interview time.

Applying for Financial Aid

Gravitas offers need-based financial aid, available on a first come, first served basis. If you plan to apply for aid to attend Gravitas, please do so as soon as possible after deciding to apply for admission. Once your aid application is complete, it can take at least two weeks for it to be processed and reviewed.

You will submit the TADS financial aid application using The Stony Brook School’s partner code (200375). You can access the SSS/TADS Family Portal to create an account and start your financial aid application.

Please note there is a $55 financial aid application fee. You may find this family resource page helpful. If you need assistance, you can call TADS Support at (800) 344-8328 or email them at sssandtadsfa@communitybrands.com.
