Day School Admissions

Interested families should email or call 510-652-4722. Parents can talk about their desires and concerns, and learn more about the structure, philosophy, and daily life at PBA. Come for a tour during school where you can meet the staff, visit classes, hear the choir sing, and learn more about the school and its graduates.

Musical experience is not a prerequisite for admission; it is enough that a boy enjoys music, takes pleasure in singing, experimenting with sound, or just likes listening. If a boy has a good ear, then he can learn to sing.

A brief placement interview to determine a boy's musical ability is a routine part of the admissions process. Our music faculty excels in training young boys to become accomplished singers. 



Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $23,000 for grades 4 & 5 and $24,000 for grades 6-8. Tuition does not include the Extended Day Program, tours, or camps.

Schedule a Student Classroom Visit Day and Placement Interview

We invite boys to spend a full school day at PBA. These visits give boys a genuine experience of what the school offers academically, musically and socially. 

During the course of their visits, boys will have a brief placement interview, and will complete a set of academic assessments. We feel strongly that this visit makes our admissions process as comprehensive as possible, allowing families and our admissions team to arrive at fully informed decisions.
We also encourage families to join us for a portion of one of our weekly Monday night dinners and rehearsals. Rehearsals are 6:00-6:45pm, with dinner 6:45-7:30pm. Our high school alumni join for dinner, and rehearse at 7:30-8:30pm. Come watch, participate, and meet the staff and students.
