Admission Process

 

Cambridge Prep Academy’s admission requirements promote student success by assessing student preparedness and academic potential in the unique context of each student's personal experience. Admission assessment will consider all achievements, both academic and non-academic, to enroll students with a broad range of characteristics and perspectives. Considerations include, but are not limited to: academic achievement, creativity, initiative, motivation, leadership, persistence, service to others, intellectual curiosity, exceptional personal or academic recognition, unusual talent or ability, substantial experience with other cultures, and ability to overcome significant challenges.

The admissions process consists of a fair and comprehensive review of all applicants to determine potential success at Cambridge Prep Academy. It is crucial for applicants to carefully complete the application process by providing thorough information. Estimating the likelihood of admission is very difficult without considering the complete application file.

            The steps in the admission process are:

  1. Completing an application (click here)

  2. A member of administration will contact you to set up an interview. 

  3. Interview completed with both student and parents. An accurate behavioral and academic report card must be provided. At the time of the interview, administration will review the documents and go over any questions. 

  4. An acceptance or denial letter will be issued within 72 hours of the interview.

Please note that academic performance is not the sole criterion for admission to the academy. The school may evaluate a person's behavior and background to determine their ability to maintain the standards of academic and professional conduct expected at the school. An evaluation may take into consideration current behavior and performance as well as past experiences and actions. Social Media venues are also weighed in. Simply qualifying for admission does not guarantee admission.

Return students will be admitted for an additional year after review of the above characteristics and achievements are weighed. Parental involvement and contribution to our Cambridge family is also heavily considered. In the family environment we have created for our school, it is crucial to have a family unit that is supporting and nurturing to the school and the learning environment.

Cambridge Prep Academy reserves the right to grant admittance only to students and families that meet our enrollment criteria. Parents will be notified of the admissions decision in person or in writing; reasons for the decision are not disclosed to applicants.  The same is applicable to re-enrollment students and families also.
