Your Admissions Interview

We want to get to know you: what you’re passionate about, your favorite activity, the last book you read, anything that helps us understand what you love to do. That’s why we require an interview for all applicants. It’s a two-way conversation, so bring your own questions. We want you to get to know us, too.

Each applicant is eligible for one interview appointment, which must be completed by Jan. 31. Interviews for the 2025-2026 incoming year will be available starting in May.


In order to schedule an interview, Part 1 of the Gateway to Prep Schools application needs to be completed. Once Part 1 has been submitted, within 24 hours we will send an email with log in information to the Exeter Applicant Portal. Once you have logged into the Exeter Applicant Portal, you will be able to schedule your interview, complete the student essay, and many more items. Interviews are a required part of the application process.
