Applicants to San Antonio Academy are required to submit a completed and signed application, a transcript of the child’s school work, any available standardized testing and at least one recommendation from the child’s previous school. In addition, all applicants are required to visit the school and attend classes for a designated time. San Antonio Academy accepts students whose overall performance conforms to the school’s mission and standards. In the case of 3rd - 8th grade candidates, it is expected that the students will have a B average or higher, standardized testing that conforms to the school’s admissions criteria and willingness to participate and contribute to the school’s diverse array of extracurricular programs.
Students who complete the admissions process are interviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, which is determined by the date the application is received by the admissions office (this applies to applicants prekindergarten – 2nd grade). Applicants for 3rd – 8th grade will no longer be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Admissions Committee will review the pool of candidates and make enrollment decisions.
Once an interview has been completed, the applicant’s status is determined by the admissions process. The Admissions Office may recommend that exceptions to the acceptance criteria be made in special cases. Final approval in this and all other matters rests with the Head of School.
