As a college preparatory school, Fenwick admits 8th graders who demonstrate the academic potential to succeed at Fenwick High School and eventually in a four-year college or university. While it is important to understand that Fenwick is a selective high school, it is equally important to understand that Fenwick seeks well-rounded young men and women who not only excel academically, but also possess leadership qualities. A selective admission process assures that the students accepted will be able to do well at Fenwick if he or she puts forth the necessary effort.
