What Banbury Crossroads says about their admissions requirements:

An interview and tour of the school is encouraged.  School records and assessments are to be submitted. There is an admissions process that involves an extensive discussion with the parents, and a two-day tryout in the School. Students who are gifted tend to excel at our School. It is critical that the student, their family, and the School's philosophical beliefs are aligned. A match of philosophy is a must.  This is because we are a philosophically-driven, self-directed learning school.  Students work to mastery, so they keep progressing until they have completed units or projects or grades.  Classes operate with students in multi-aged groups, with 8 students per teacher, so students receive a great deal of individualized attention. This allows for students to work independently, as they receive instruction individually or in small groups or seminars.  We are not a Special Needs school, but we can accommodate certain students with mild-to-manageable learning challenges, though we generally only take students whose abilities are average through to gifted.

What type of student Banbury Crossroads is looking for:

We are looking for students who are able to work independently, as well as willing to work individually with a teacher. Students need to be willing to try new learning experiences, open to instruction, willing to attend, socially adept and responsive, mutually respectful, and pleasant and able to be responsible for their own behaviour. We are able to celebrate differences in abilities, interests and passions, motivation, and personalities. We simply want students who are motivated to learn, empathetic and caring, and able to not distract others. If they are self-directed to begin with, that is great. If not, they may learn how to be, here.
