Admissions & Financial Aid


Welcome to Admissions and Financial Aid at The Bush School. We are a K-12 educational community designed to capture students’ intellectual curiosity and fuel their academic, artistic, athletic, and personal growth. 
Since 1924, Bush has trusted its students to take responsibility for and to engage actively in their learning. Our students grow to be critical, creative, and independent in thought, ethical in judgment and action, and active citizens in the global community. At The Bush School, we teach young people to be good students and good human beings. We ask students to use their learning to make the world a better place.
Please click on the “Apply Online” button in the top right corner to:
  • Create a student profile and complete an application via Ravenna (formerly Orcas Mosaic)
  • Complete our online inquiry 
We look forward to meeting you and your family, and to sharing The Bush School experience.

Best regards,


Polly Oppmann Fredlund
