Welcome Future Barstow Families

Choosing the right education for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make. We’re excited that you have chosen to explore Barstow!
Barstow is filled with curious students — and teachers who invest time in getting to know each one of them. When teachers know a child’s strengths and interests, they can design individualized learning so every student feels confident, valued and eager to learn.
Our admission team is ready to help you find the right school fit. We look forward to seeing your child graduate from Barstow, whether they begin in preschool, middle school or freshman year, fully prepared for the challenges ahead.

We're open! As an independent school, Barstow has the flexibility to move between in-person instruction, online classes or a customized blend of both.
The same is true of our admission office. Most in-person campus visits are currently suspended as part of our health and safety protocols, but we’ve created virtual events and experiences that will introduce you to our school and community in a meaningful and experiential way. Contact us and we’ll work together to schedule appointments that work best for you.

Barstow accepts admission applications year round, with a recommended sequence of steps that will help you move easily from inquiry and applying to visiting and enrolling. Our team will help guide you through these steps:
