Admissions Process

It is the policy of Allen Academy to administer its educational programs, including admission and financial aid, without regard to race, religion, color, sex, national origin, disability, and age.


1) Tour


Contact the Admissions Office to take a tour of the school campus. This is the best way to find out about what Allen Academy has to offer, see classes in action, and meet some of our teachers.

2) Shadow for a Day


Arrange for your child to 'shadow' for the day with us. We will pair your child up with one of our students who will guide them between classes and be a friend to them while they experience a typical day at Allen Academy.

3) Application


Go to the 'Apply Here' tab in the admissions drop down menu to begin the online application process.

4) Assessment


The Admissions Office will contact you to arrange your child's assessment. Assessments are given to all students entering Allen from Kindergarten onward. Students entering grade 2 and above will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). There is a $100 fee for this test which is paid upon registration. Assessments are necessary to make sure that incoming students will be able to navigate our program.

5) Notification


Our Admissions Committee meets regularly to look at completed applications. The Admissions Office will contact families to let them know of the admission decision.

6) Enrollment


Accepted families will receive an invitation to enroll online. There is an enrollment fee of $50 per student.

Allen Academy will accept applications until all available spots in our classes are filled. If no spots are available, qualified applicants will be placed in a waiting pool. Wait pools are not prioritized waiting lists. If an opening becomes available, the admissions committee will select the most appropriate candidate. The school reserves the right to give priority consideration to qualified sibling and alumni child applicants.
