Early Applicants

If you’re eager to secure your 7th grade student’s spot at Academy High, now is the time to apply. By submitting any application promptly, you ensure that their place in an upcoming 9th-grade class is reserved, setting the stage for an incredible educational journey.

Once your student has applied and been accepted, the next step is simple: your student will complete their 8th-grade year at their current school. This is a crucial prerequisite as they prepare to transition into high school life.

Those who apply in their 7th grade year will receive their admissions decision and any merit-based scholarship offer this January, and will receive an enrollment contract in the fall of the student’s 8th grade year.

We accept transfer applications throughout the year! Whether you're seeking a new environment or relocating to our town, we're here to help you make a seamless transition to our vibrant community.
