The Admissions Process:

2.) Attend an Open House - RSVP HERE

Tour, meet faculty and leadership staff, and learn more.

3.) Attend a Prospective Student Day

Join us at The Neighborhood Academy to complete several steps in the admissions process. Upon arrival, students and families will participate in a family interview. Next, they will shadow a current student to get a feel for classes and expectations. Finally, they will take an academic test to determine core grade-level knowledge. You cannot test your way into or out of the school; this test only serves to give us a benchmark to measure your student’s academic growth.

4.) Supply Records

All academic, attendance, health, and discipline records, as well as household Federal Income Tax Return are due.

5.) Admissions Decision for Summer Programming

Students will be invited to participate in our summer programming. This is a mandatory prerequisite for admission in the fall.

The Neighborhood Academy reserves the right to modify the Admissions Process at any time.
