2. Submit the Admission Application and the $50 non-refundable application fee. 

3. After the Admission Application has been submitted, the Admissions Office will send an invitation to schedule an Assessment Visit*, giving young children the opportunity to experience school at PNA while our teachers complete the required school readiness assessments and observations

Consideration will be given to an applicant's previous school experience, social and academic readiness, and the family's alignment with the mission of PNA. Each qualified applicant will be admitted on a space-available basis. The Admissions Committee will make an admissions decision and notify the parents/guardians within 10 days of assessment. A student is considered enrolled when a signed enrollment contract is on file and the non-refundable tuition deposit has been paid in full.

  3. Submit a Student Records Request Form to the applicant's current school. 

  4. After we receive your application, the recommendation forms, and the student records, we will contact you to schedule an Assessment Visit*. The visit is designed for the applicant to experience a day at PNA and to complete required Admissions Testing and for the school to observe the applicant in an educational setting.

 

 

Consideration will be given to an applicant's previous academic records including teacher recommendations, previous school records, standardized testing and alignment with the mission of PNA. The Admission Committee will also review Admissions Testing conducted during the required Applicant Visit. Each qualified applicant will be admitted on a space available basis. The Admissions Committee will make an admissions decision and notify the parents/guardians within 10 days of assessment. A student is considered enrolled when a signed enrollment contract is on file and the non-refundable tuition deposit has been paid in full.

 

 

* An on-site assessment prior to attendance is not always possible. In such cases, PNA will conduct the assessment within five school days of the student’s first day of attendance. If the assessment reveals observations contrary to the PNA mission and culture, PNA reserves the right to dismiss the student. The family will not be bound to the enrollment contract.
