The diversity of our learning community is essential to the quality of the education that we provide. As our students encounter new perspectives, they grow stronger and better prepared to navigate the complexity of our pluralistic society. We welcome applications from students of all interests and backgrounds who are eager to embrace the opportunity of a Thaden education. While our application process requires a significant investment of time and thought, it is designed to be a mutually enlightening experience that gives prospective families greater insight into the nature and value of our educational programs while enabling us to learn more about our applicants and their readiness for the challenges and opportunities they will find here.
Our checklist guides you through the application process and outlines the materials that are required. We encourage interested applicants and their families to complete the first two components of the application – the Student and Parent Questionnaires – as soon as possible. Please note that we must receive this information before scheduling an Applicant & Family Meeting. Applications received after our January 5 deadline will be considered on a rolling basis.

Applications may be submitted electronically or in hard copy. To request a paper application, please contact us at 479-268-5321 or Paper applications should be sent to Thaden School, 410 SE Staggerwing Lane, Bentonville, AR 72712.
