Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What must be included with my application?

A. The application must be completely filled out and signed by a parent/guardian and a school official. It must include school transcripts from 7th grade, first marking period of 8th grade, and current standardized test scores.  The deadline for applications will be NOVEMBER 23, 2016.  It is the applicant's responsibility to make sure that the application is in the Academy school office on or before the deadline. 

 

Q: How competitive is the field and what are the minimum requirements?

A. In general there will be more applicants than available spaces.  We rank all applicants based on academic records and performance on our Assessment Test. Students who are accepted generally average “B” or better in grade / middle school.

 

Q: What happens if I am not accepted?

A. If you are not accepted but you qualify, your application will remain on file.  Should an opening occur, your application may be reconsidered.

 

Q: Are there waiting lists?

A. Please note that we plan to over-enroll in anticipation of some attrition.  This means that if a student leaves the school, he / she may not necessarily be replaced.  All applications are kept on file through the following school year.  Should an acceptance be turned down, an accepted student moves or decide not to stay, resulting in an opening, the waiting list will be reviewed for a replacement.

 

Q: What is on the Assessment Test?

A. The Assessment will test math and language skills.  It is not necessary to have taken algebra to do well.  The language questions test reading skills and basic grammar skills.

 

Q: What if I am sick and miss the test date?

A. A make-up test date will be administered based on the circumstances of the individual with prior approval.

 

Q: How and when will I be notified of acceptance?

A. After the admission exams, applicants will be notified if they have been selected for an interview.  Following the conclusion of interview, all applicants will be notified in writing of the final decision on their application.  The interview and notification process is generally concluded by the end of February.

 

Q: How will my eligibility be related to my residency?

A. As described under the acceptance procedures, at least one place will be reserved for each school district that has submitted qualified applicants.

 

Q: How is residency for Private / Parochial School Students determined?

A. All students are considered to be from the public school district in which they reside, regardless of the school that they attend.
