How Are Courses Assigned?

The Academy attempts to place students in their first class choice, but some classes have more applicants than seats available. The instructor for each class reviews student files and determines whether an applicant would be able to successfully complete the class by considering such factors as the student’s ACT score, school transcript, essay responses, letter of recommendation, and, if applicable, their previous work at the Academy.

The Academy will inform students once their application has been received and completed (including ACT/SAT/PSAT score). Students whose applications are complete by the deadline of November 14, 2016 will have the best chance of receiving their first class choice. No student will be placed in a class until his/her application is complete.

After each instructor has reviewed all of his/her applications and chosen his/her students, we will notify the students by mail around early March 2017 of acceptance to the Academy.
