The Admission Process
Students must be accepted to Foundation Preparatory Academy through a formal admissions process. Foundation Preparatory Academy is a University-Model® School. Because of this, both parent involvement and student cooperation are essential if the Academy is to successfully fulfill its mission, a mission that includes a vital spiritual element. Therefore, as a condition of acceptance to this school, the parents of each student applying for admission must be in agreement with the school’s doctrinal position and must fulfill the following requirements:
Attend an Information Meeting:
Parents are required to attend an on-campus information meeting about the Academy before submitting an application. Dates for these New Student Enrollment Information Sessions are listed on the home page of Foundation Prep’s website. Parents will hear from Foundation Preparatory Academy administration regarding the school’s mission, policies, academics and extracurricular opportunities. Parents will receive an application for their student as well as specific direction on admissions procedures at this meeting.
Prayerfully consider your family’s needs for education and whether those needs would best be met by Foundation Preparatory Academy.
Complete Application Form:
If, after reviewing the school material and praying about your decision you are still interested in the Academy, then please complete & submit an Application Form. The application is submitted electronically. The supplemental document should be mailed to the school, all together, at one time. Supplemental documents include: three reference letters (one letter each supporting spiritual, academic and personal character), current immunization records, transcripts, and any formal testing results. Note that the date when you formally apply for admission will be used in determining course registration priorities over other new students. There is a $150 application fee required at this time ($100 for the second child, and $50 for all subsequent children). This fee covers the admissions process and is non-refundable.
Placement Testing and Evaluation:
Academic courses offered at the Academy require placement testing for students. Students are tested in English and Math. This is done so that we can more appropriately place students in each course. Additional prior academic work may be requested to ensure appropriate placement. There is a non-refundable $25, one-time fee per test per student for placement testing that covers the test proctoring and evaluation. A completed application along with supplemental documents must be received before registering for testing. Placement test registration forms and dates are included in the application packet and must be submitted one week prior to the desired testing date, along with the test fee. Testing must be completed and results determined prior to registration for any classes for the upcoming semester.
The interview is a process that is handled by the admissions committee. The purpose of this meeting is to make certain that each family has had a personal opportunity to have all of their questions about the Academy answered and to make certain that the Academy is the appropriate school for their children. An individual on the admissions committee will call to arrange an interview.
Letter of Acceptance:
Once the interview process has been completed, each family will receive a letter electronically from the admissions committee. This letter will indicate the admissions committee’s decision for each child.
Upon acceptance to Foundation Preparatory Academy, you may register for classes. Registration information will be sent through email. A non-refundable fee of $250 is due with submission of course selection. Classes are filled in the order that the registration is received. Each registration will be marked with date/time received. The school’s registrar is available to help with your course registration questions. If your child is a high school student, then our academic advisor will meet with you and the student to discuss various diploma options for graduation. High school grade report copies and/or transcripts will be reviewed at this meeting.
Purchase uniforms and all required books at the beginning of the summer.
Parent & Student Orientation:
The parent serving as the primary Co-Teacher will need to participate in a day-long training designed to equip Co-Teachers in their role at Foundation Preparatory Academy.
