We are excited to launch admissions for Fall 2021 for grades TK-9!
Admissions is now open and you may click here to submit your application for our Early or Regular Admissions cycle.
At BASIS Independent Fremont, students and Subject Expert Teachers engage in a spiraling liberal arts and sciences curriculum benchmarked to the best education systems in the world. We believe in setting a higher standard for students and promoting self reliance and accountability in an environment where learning is encouraged and celebrated.
Early and Regular Admissions
This year, we have two admissions cycles: Early and Regular Admissions. Early Admissions is only open for Transitional Kindergarten (TK), while Regular Admissions is for grades TK-9.
What's the difference between Early and Regular Admissions?
Early Admissions: If BASIS Independent Fremont is your top choice, we recommend you apply in Early Admissions for Transitional Kindergarten. You will receive an admissions decision this November and you will also have an earlier commitment date if your child(ren) are accepted and you decide to enroll. Additionally, your private school search is completed by December instead of March! We will reserve a select number of seats for Regular Admission applicants.
Regular Admissions: Families are notified of an admissions decision in March, which aligns with decisions from other private schools in the Bay Area.
