At The Island Academy, we welcome all inquiries regarding admissions and encourage students and families to visit the campus for an opportunity to see all that we offer. Although we gladly welcome prospective students and their families to visit the campus, unfortunately due to limited classroom size and full capacity levels, we are unable to facilitate children "sitting-in" on classes until they are enrolled as a full-time student.

Students interested in attending The Island Academy must first complete and submit the Application for Admission form available from the office. A non-refundable $500 BZ application fee is required at the time of application.
At the Beginner's level, an evaluation of the child and a questionnaire by the parent will be used in a comprehensive assessment process by the school's Admissions Committee to determine the child's readiness for entrance into school. We have found this necessary at the Beginner's level to ensure that the child has the social and motor skills necessary to enable them to fully participate, contribute and interact with other students at the same grade level. To enroll in the Beginner's level the student must be five years old by September 1st of that school year.
For all other grade levels, a personal interview with a representative of the school is required. One or both parents or guardian should be present at the interview. The personal interview will allow a better understanding of our school and will enable you to see how your child will fit in at The Island Academy.
Students who are accepted may be expected to take standardized placement tests in early Spring. All applications are considered without regard to race, creed, color, ethnic, religious or national origin.
