Thank you for your interest in Drew!

Thank you for your interest in Drew!
We are eager to meet you and get to know you! We invite you to visit our beautiful campus here in the heart of San Francisco, so that you may discover our culture of exploration.

If there is one thing that sets Drew apart, it is that since its foundation, Drew has held a fundamental belief in teenagers. Our goal, therefore, is to inspire and nurture you every day to fully develop the innate gifts, talents, and curiosity that make you so uniquely you. We want you to walk through our doors each day feeling supported as you discover your individual voice.

We invite you to get to know Drew by further exploring our website, visiting our campus, and talking to the students and teachers. We are looking forward to learning more about you and we are excited at the prospect of welcoming you into our Drew community so that you can find your voice!

See you soon,

Marcia Levin
Director of Admission

  • STEP 1: Create a Ravenna Account and Submit an Inquiry

    Create an account in Ravenna and submit an inquiry. Once you have completed your inquiry form, you will have an opportunity to move ahead with scheduling your visit and other events.
  • Step 2: Schedule a Visit and Interview

    Students have the opportunity to shadow a current Drew student and attend two to three classes on a typical day. During this time, the student is interviewed by a member of the Admissions team who is eager to get to know you. The interview is a conversation about you and an opportunity to answer questions about Drew. You may schedule this through Ravenna.

    Interviews are a mandatory part of the admissions process at Drew. All student visitors are interviewed. However, if a visit is not possible for you, interview-only afternoons are offered between 4 and 6 p.m. You may schedule these through Ravenna.
