Student Writing


Print the Process

First, print off the admissions documents. These documents include the checklist, application, and teacher recommendation forms. In addition to these forms, we ask that you submit copies of report cards, standardized testing, and income tax return.


Visit Campus

Chinquapin hosts three Open Houses (dates) during the year and this is a great opportunity to visit campus, meet staff, and speak to current students and parents. If you are not able to attend one of the Open Houses, please call the admissions office to schedule a tour.


Submit Documents

Once you have collected the admissions documents we recommend submitting these by email or fax. You may also mail them directly to the school. All documents may be submitted to:

Tina Barr
Director of Admissions
2615 East Wallisville Rd.
Highlands, TX 77562

Fax: 281-426-5553


Admissions Testing

All applicants are required to take an admissions test on campus. We use the Stanford 10 (math and reading) in addition to a short writing prompt. There are three test dates throughout the year. Each testing date is by invitation only and all application documents must be submitted prior to the testing date. There are limited spaces available at each testing.

Please note there is no cost for the testing, or at any time during the admissions process.



All applicants are required to interview. This may be an evening interview scheduled through admissions or it may be a shadow day where a prospective student spends the day on campus.


Summer Session

Middle and Upper school applicants may be invited to our Summer Session. This is often held the first week of June and gives us a chance to assess the academic capabilities of an applicant and get to know them as individuals.


Required Documents:


  1. Completed application and essay questions (no fee).
  2. Copies of report cards (last year’s complete report card and this year’s most recent).
    Students applying for grades 9-12 MUST submit a copy of current transcript.
  3. Copies of most recent STAAR testing (PSAT/SAT for grades 10 and above). Other standardized testing is acceptable if applying from a private school.
  4. 2 teacher recommendation forms (please download this form).
  5. Copy of most recent tax return (2015 or 2016).
