Greetings from the Jackson Walnut Park Admissions Office!

Thank you for your interest in our warm and welcoming community.  We look forward to connecting with you and to helping you navigate your way through the admissions process.

For transfer applicants to the current school year, please call 617-202-9772 to speak to our Director of Admissions for the transfer application process.

For applications to the 2020-21 school year, the process at Jackson Walnut Park is virtually paperless. Using a web-based platform called Ravenna families may efficiently apply and track the status of their applications online.  Applications for Fall 2020 will open in October 2019.

To begin, prospective parents should create an online Ravenna account using an email address you will have access to throughout the admission season.  Once you have created the Ravenna account, make sure that you find Jackson Walnut Park in the school directory and select “Explore.” This will activate you in the system and will allow us to schedule personalized tours of our campus as well as inform you of upcoming events and deadlines.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Admissions at 617-202-9772 at any point. You may also email our Director of Admissions, Sandi Dunn at sdunn@jwpschools.org
