Your Online 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 Feb. 1. Interviews are available only for students applying for admission for the 2022-2023 school year. 


Candidates applying for the 2022-2023 school year are eligible to schedule their interview once they have submitted Part 1 of the Gateway to Prep Schools application. Once Part 1 is submitted, candidates will receive an email providing them access to the Exeter Applicant Portal where they will have access to schedule their online interview. Please note that after submitting the Part of the Gateway to Prep Schools application, it may take up to two business days for the applicant to receive their login information.
