A Welcome to Prospective Students

Thank you for including Madeira in your high school search! This exciting time for you and your family is a journey of discovery, and our hope is that you will use the admission process to learn about the range of educational opportunities available to you and the kind of school community that fits you best. Use our website to learn as much as you can about our excellent faculty, innovative academic program, collaborative learning community, award-winning Co-Curriculum program, and the lives of the 319 girls who attend Madeira. Take a moment to imagine yourself here.  

Be sure to check our Important Dates & Deadlines page to learn about Open House Dates and other upcoming admission items.

Also, consider attending our Girls First! summer camp at Madeira. This unique learning opportunity gives students an early taste of what life at Madeira is all about. Girls First! runs from July 9 - 22, 2017. 

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better.
