Apply to Dive In Commonwealth

A small number of seventh-grade students are accepted into Dive In Commonwealth each year. We are looking for students who love to learn, want to stretch themselves, and are eager to pursue their academic dreams—and we are happy to guide families through our application process. 

The 2023 application deadline is May 15. This year's summer program will run from July 5 to August 16, 2023.

How to Apply, Step by Step

  • Step 1: Complete entire application below, including demographic information and short-answer questions. 
  • Step 2: Download and complete the Transcript Release Form to give to your school principal or guidance counselor (they should then send the transcript to us). 
  • Step 3: Send us standardized test scores, if relevant: MCAS, ISEE, ERB, or other.  
  • Step 4: Come in for a tour and interview (both the student and a parent/guardian); once we receive your application, we will schedule your visit. 

If you would like a PDF of the application you can print out and mail in, or if you would like the application translated into a language other than English, please do not hesitate to let us know.
