Meet the Admissions Committee

At Commonwealth, teachers play an important role in the admissions process. After all, they are students’ mentors and guides in the classroom; why shouldn’t that relationship start during the admissions process? 
The teachers and staff on our admissions committee know Commonwealth well—and every committee member reads every application, drawing on their deep collective knowledge of our culture and programs to determine the fit between an applicant and our school. You can get to know them (and what they're looking for in applicants) a little better, too.
