Prince William Academy seeks to enroll students who are eager to learn, will make a positive contribution to our school community, and strive for success.
We do not discriminate in our admissions, and enroll students of all backgrounds and abilities in keeping with our belief that diversity is fundamental to quality education.
The first step in the admissions process is a tour of our school. Parents may arrange for a tour in several ways: by calling (703)491-1444 emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling out the tour request form found on the Home Page of our website. Prospective families may choose to tour the school with or without their child. If parents decide to initiate the admissions process, they return the requisite paperwork and documents to us electronically, and bring their child in to meet our administrators and teachers, and see the classroom. At this visit, our administrators will conduct an interview with the prospective family, including the child. Prospective students in grades 1st – 8th may visit a class or shadow a student for an entire school day.
On a shadow day, a prospective student will be matched with a current student of similar age and will attend and participate in that student’s classes and activities. If, following the admissions interview, our administrators determine that a child would be a good fit at our school, the school will make an offer of admission. Parents then meet with our admissions director to go over details of enrollment, discuss individual goals for their child, and sign an enrollment contract.
Parents should note that because we stringently cap our class sizes and teacher/student ratios at all grade levels, we sometimes have a waiting list. Administrators will advise all prospective families at the outset of a tour if there is a waiting list for their child’s grade level.
