Brandon Academy has a non-discriminatory admission policy. We seek to educate students of average to above average ability. The admissions process begins when an initial contact is made by a parent via telephone, email, or personal visit to the school. At that time an appointment is arranged with the principal and/or the Head of School for a tour of the facility. Following the campus tour, parents return to the principal’s office where any questions are answered. Information about the prospective student also is obtained at that time. If that parent chooses to continue the admissions process, a formal application is completed and an admissions testing appointment is scheduled. Prior standardized testing results, report cards and any additional reports or information that will help the school better understand the student’s ability, skills and academic strengths and weakness are obtained from the parents and reviewed by administration. Records are requested from the prospective student’s current school. Classroom observations by a parent and/or student visit may be arranged.
Admissions decisions are made by the admissions committee based on all of the above information. Brandon Academy seeks to admit students who demonstrate the ability to be successful in our challenging academic program as well as those who possess a positive moral character and the ability to adjust socially. Preference is given to siblings of students who are currently enrolled. Applications are always welcomed. When classes are full, approved students are put on a waiting list until such time space becomes available.
