APPLICATION PROCESS

Lee-Scott Academy is an independent school serving over 700 Pre-K through 12th grade students.

All candidates for admission are considered with care. Admission decisions are individually determined and are based upon academic records, ability, achievement test scores and interviews. The Admissions Committee considers what our school can offer each candidate and also what contributions the candidate can make to the Lee-Scott Academy family.

 

The admissions process varies slightly with the grade to which the application is made but includes these common elements:

 

  • Application and non-refundable fee: A completed application and the required application fee are required before a student may be considered for acceptance
  • Transcripts or report cards, standardized testing results, and teacher recommendations: Past performance is a strong indicator of future performance. Grades, tardies, absences, and teacher comments all enable us to see how prospective students have performed in their past school. Students applying for grades two through 12 are required to have  two teachers recommendations. Students applying for Pre-K, Kindergarten, or first grade are evaluated for readiness.
  • Interviews:  Each applicant is asked to visit our school and secondary students participate in an interview. Secondary students are also welcome to schedule a time to shadow a current student in either their present grade or the grade in which they may potentially be enrolled.
  • Contract: Once an offer of enrollment has been extended by Lee-Scott Academy, a signed enrollment contract will be required to secure your child a place in that class.

 

Qualified students who are not initially offered contracts will be placed on the waiting list. Decisions are made on student qualifications and readiness rather then the length of time a candidate has been on the waiting list. When a place becomes available in a class, each child from the pool will be reconsidered.
