Students are admitted to the Academy as space is available.
1. Informal Interview & Tour
Come to the Academy with or without your child/children for a brief visit and tour with one of our faculty. This will give you a chance to get to know our school and see us in operation.
2. Application and Registration Fee (one per student)
Complete and return the Application along with the $50 application fee.
3. Student Visits
When the application is submitted during the school year, families are required to make an appointment with the office for prospective students to visit the school for three full days to include the Wednesday Enrichment Day. These visits serve to introduce the applicant to our community and provide Boxford Academy an opportunity to evaluate the applicant. Kindergarten applicants visit for a half-day of preschool only. Applicants beginning the process after the close of the academic year will schedule appointments for placement evaluations during the summer.
4. Family Interview
Once the student visits are completed, families should call the office to make an appointment for an interview by a member of our Admissions Committee. Parents and prospective students are interviewed together. Following the interview, families will be sent a letter indicating the committee's decision.
5. Academic Records & Medical Forms
All academic and medical forms must be filled out and returned to the school office. A current physician's exam must be on file before the first day of school. Previously home-schooled students may submit any formal testing records or a copy of formal progress assessments, such as those submitted to the local Superintendent.
6. Deposits, Fees & Tuition Payments
Upon notification of acceptance applicants have ten days to pay deposit on tuition to hold their space. Choose a tuition payment schedule that works best for your family.
