School Notes

  • Parents interested in learning more about Academy programs and opportunities are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office to schedule a campus visit or request more information. Prospective Middle and Upper School students in particular benefit from visiting classes with a current student in the same grade level, as coordinated by the Admissions staff. The student must then perform satisfactorily on a nationally standardized admissions test, and the Academy must receive evidence of the student`s good behavior at previous schools, as applicable. The following documents are requested: Birth Certificate, Current Health (immunization) forms, Recommendation(s) from current teachers, School records, academic reports, and transcripts. Pre-kindergarten children do not take written application tests. September 30 is the birth date used to place children into appropriate Pre-K classes (for three or four year olds).
