Timeline & Forms

Please note: Our application for the 2023-2024 academic year will take place on a separate online platform via our new student information system and will open on October 1st. We invite you to review our application requirements and process below, but ask that all 2023-2024 applicants check back after October 1st for more details on beginning the application. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to complete our online inquiry form or email admissions@charlemont.org to learn more about The Academy and schedule a visit! 

Steps for Applying

Step 1: Is the Academy the right school for you? Look over the website. Check out our Facebook Page. Call or email the Admissions Office (admissions@charlemont.org) or fill in an online inquiry form. Attend an Open House. However it is that you hear about our school, we look forward to hearing from you!

Step 2: If you like what you learn about the school, arrange to spend the day; visit days are taking place in a virtual iteration this year. Talk with students, visit classes, have an interview, ask questions.

Step 3: Complete an application through our online application and be sure to request school records and current teacher references via the links to the right.  

Our regular initial deadline for completed admissions applications is February 15, and families who apply by this date receive admissions decisions no later than March 15th. For families who submit applications for the 2022-2023 school year by March 1st, we will share admissions decisions no later than March 15th. We’re happy to meet prospective students and accept applications thereafter, on a space available basis.

Step 4: If your family is interested in financial aid, the deadline for applying is February 15, and we suggest visiting our page on Affording The Academy for more information.  A completed online application and a copy of the previous year’s tax return are required. Financial aid may still be granted for applications completed after the deadline. 

Step 5: Decisions for applications submitted by February 15th are mailed by March 15th. If you are accepted, we ask that you and your family notify us by April 10th of your intention to join the Academy community. A deposit of 10% of your net tuition or $1,000 (whichever is greater) will hold your place.
