Admissions Standards, Policies, and Procedures
Once the completed application is submitted to the front office, the child’s application will undergo a Review. A Review consists of examining all previous test scores, report cards, application, transcript and the student interview with the teacher. Previous school and teacher recommendations are also considered.
In addition, a parent and student interview is conducted with administration to complete the application process. Children are admitted to Downtown Academy on an individual basis after careful review of the above criteria. The head of school or the receptionist will phone parents after the Review to inform them of the student’s application status and to set up a date and time for a parent and child interview.
All kindergarten applicants must be five years of age on or before September 5th of the enrolling year.
