Admissions and Enrollment
Thank you for your interest in Philmore Academy. Our mission is to help all students reach their full potential, in the classroom and in life. As an independent school, we are enriched by the diverse backgrounds and talents of all our families. We are excited to welcome new students into our Eagle family. Philmore Academy for Science & Arts is deeply committed to providing a rigorous STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program. We foster creativity, innovation, and diversity. Our goal is to develop global leaders as well informed global citizens of excellence.
Due to the competitiveness of our enrollment and acceptance process we strongly urge interested parents to act quickly when applying for admissions. All students and families will be interviewed prior to admissions. Students entering into grades K and above will receive an entrance exam to ensure that they are able to handle the rigor of our academic program. Enrollment closes once we have selected the most qualified applicants and we have met our class-size limits. In order to both streamline our process and protect our academic environment we only give tours to applicants and their families at the time of the admissions interview. Once we have reviewed an applicant’s application, we will contact the applicant’s family to schedule an interview if said applicant meets our enrollment criteria listed below.
As we are a school of academic and behavioral excellence, in making our admissions decisions, the most important factors considered are:
No negative discipline history from another school
Not currently on an IEP or Special needs services
Most recent report card contains no more than two C's, no D's or F's
Students applying to Kindergarten and above will be asked to come to Philmore Academy to complete a diagnostic assessment.
If your child meets all of the criteria listed above, we welcome you to begin the application process by following the steps below. The Admissions staff is ready to help you with any questions you may have along the way. Each applicant’s academic potential, scholastic motivation, and character will be considered in the admissions process.
To ensure your application is submitted properly, please make sure you:
1. Complete the online application (must submit Most Recent Report Cards/Progress Report and provide two teacher emails for recommendation to be sent)
2. Application will be screened and within 3 days you will be emailed an Interview schedule.
3. Parent/Student Interview will be conducted with a Teacher as well as the School Principal
We look forward to your call and welcoming you to the Philmore Academy family.
