Step 1-Schedule a tour of the school
During this visit, the caregiver will have an opportunity to observe the classrooms, review curriculum and a student data profile, and ask questions pertinent to the program.
Step 2-Application packet
Complete Application Packet and gather appropriate documentation for review by the Director.
Step 3-Schedule a placement assessment
During this visit, the caregiver will provide all documentation and a non-refundable application fee of $50. The child will accompany the caregiver and a dynamic assessment will be conducted by the Director and a faculty member to include a caregiver interview, review of application packet, academic review, and social observation.
Step 4-Placement determination
The Director will contact the child’s caregiver to discuss availability of placement if recommended as a result of the placement assessment. If placement is not deemed appropriate at the Academy, a list of recommendations and resources may be provided. If a space is not available in the appropriate classroom, the child will be placed on a wait list and parents will be notified as soon as an opening is anticipated.
Step 5-Transition Visits
A schedule will be determined to allow for the child to visit the appropriate classroom. We prefer that the child visit on three separate dates to ensure “good fit” and to allow for acclimation to the campus setting.
Upon determination of placement availability and, the caregiver will connect with the Business Office to discuss tuition fees and payment and to determine a start date.
