The Academy admits young people in grades 6-12 who have learning style differences and/or who seek a smaller learning environment, individualized teacher attention, or an alternative learning experience.
Admissions applications are accepted year-round. Since the admission procedure is competitive, parents are encouraged to begin the process as early as possible.
Step One: Admissions Inquiry
Parent/Guardians should complete the Admissions Inquiry form on the right hand side of this page. Upon receipt of a completed inquiry form, the family will be contacted by our admissions department.
Step Two: Tour
Prospective students and their parents/guardians will meet with our admissions department and tour the facilities to learn all about what we have to offer.
Step Three: Visit(s)
All prospective students are invited to join us for either a full day or half day visit for all parties to see if this is a good fit. Some students choose to have multiple visits. Families will be asked to share any relevant educational documentation (recent IEP, recent report cards, psychological educational assessments, etc.) at this point.
Step Four: Application
Families will be sent and are asked to complete the application package.
Step Five: Acceptance Decision and Contract
All applicants will be contacted by the Head of School with the admission decision. Successful applicants will be sent a letter of acceptance. Families will be sent a contract and once it has been filled out, the application process is complete. Welcome to the YMCA Academy family!
