1. Attend a Family Information Meeting
Due to the unique nature of our school model, at least one parent of a prospective student is required to attend a family information meeting prior to beginning the application for admission. Please use the contact form on our website or email Head of School to schedule an information session, or see registration options by clicking the button below.
2. Required Reading
Before beginning the application for admission, we ask that all parents or guardians read the following texts on Classical education and University-Model® education. These readings give a thorough overview of both our philosophy and structure of education and assist parents in determining if Arise Classical Academy would be the right fit for their family.
3. Complete an Application for Admission
Please prayerfully consider if Arise Classical Academy is a fit for your family prior to applying. Parents and students must sign a form stating their acknowledgment of our Statement of Faith as an expression of who we are and what will be taught in the classroom.
A nonrefundable application fee of $150 per student will be collected at the time of application. Once one parent or guardian has attended a family information session, your family is invited to begin an application for admission.
Applying is easy using our Online Application. We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.
After submitting the application, you will be able to track online your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account. There you will be able to print the completed applications, monitor when the school receives supplemental application forms and, if necessary, reprint the supplemental forms.
4. Gather Additional Documents
The following documents may be required during the application process.
- A copy of most recent report card for the previous school year
- Copies of supplemental test results and/or educational plans (i.e. psychological or learning disabilities testing, I.E.P.’s) – only if applicable
5. Partnership Conference
Once an application has been submitted and all additional documents received, you will be contacted by Arise Classical Academy to schedule a Partnership Conference. Both parents, as well as the prospective student, must be present at the Partnership Conference. This meeting serves as an opportunity for us to get to know your family and determine if the partnership between your family and our school would be an excellent one.
6. Admissions Decision
An admissions decision will be rendered by Arise Classical Academy within two to four weeks of the Partnership Conference. Families will be notified of our decision by email. Arise Classical Academy does place a cap on class size. If a particular grade level is full, Arise Classical Academy may place students on a wait list. The order of wait list placement is at the sole discretion of the administration.
7. Register to Secure Your Seat
Once admitted, you will receive an email with instructions on completing the Online Enrollment Process. Please follow the instructions in the email, and enroll your child within 10 days of receiving your Admissions Notification. A non-refundable registration fee will be due at this time to hold a place for your child at Arise Classical Academy. If your enrollment fee is received after the ten day registration window, we cannot guarantee your child’s place in our school for the coming school year.
8. Placement Testing
In order to ensure correct level and class placement, Arise Classical Academy may administer placement testing to students applying. Depending on availability, we may conduct placement testing during the Partnership Conference, or you may be asked to schedule placement testing at a later date. You will receive information via email regarding the details for placement testing.
9. Required Parent Training & Orientation
Subject to the Constitution of the United States and all applicable state and federal laws, Arise Classical Academy does not discriminate against applicants or students on the basis of race, color, and national or ethnic origin in its admissions or in the administration of its education policies, programs, or activities. In addition, subject to the Constitution of the United States and all applicable state and federal laws, Arise Classical Academy does not discriminate in its employment practices.
Arise Classical Academy is not currently equipped to modify its instructional or evaluation procedures in response to a student’s learning differences or special challenges. All students will receive credit for work completed relative to a common standard, rather than individualized standards created based on a student’s special needs.
