Admission Process

The admission process at Academy Schools is designed to acquaint parents and their children with the education philosophy and superior learning opportunities available at Academy Schools. We want to ensure the School is a good fit for the child and the family. The process functions on a rolling basis.

Please read below for information about the admission process:
* Contact Mrs. Sargent, Executive Director, at (206) 588-0860 to schedule a visit where parents meet the teachers and staff, as well as observe classes during their regular daily routine. Questions are answered and a enrollment packet is provided.
* Complete and submit an application with a $75 non-refundable application fee. Prior student records are released to Academy Schools.
* Schedule a student visit. For Pre-K & Kindergarten students, the visit may be a ½ day. For all other grades, school visits are a full academic day. A $150 screening fee is due upon the scheduled visit. The student comes to school with pencil, paper, snack and (for older students) a lunch. All visitors will be assigned a ‘buddy’ to help familiarize incoming students with our school and its routine. During the visit, teachers collect observation and/or testing date, depending on the age of the child.
*Following the student visit, the Admissions Committee meets to review all testing, teacher notes, and the student’s previous file, if applicable, and makes a recommendation either for or against enrollment.
* Parents will be notified within two weeks on the committee’s enrollment decision and receive a contract and an e-copy of the student-parent handbook. These documents are signed and returned along with a $300 deposit and any other related fees.
* Upon receipt of the signed contract and deposit, a countersigned copy of the contract and welcome letter will be sent to the parents. A member of our Welcoming Committee will be in touch to provide answers to questions and offer any other help acquainting the newly enrolled family with the Academy Schools!
