GRADES 2-12 CRITERIA AND ADMISSION PROCESS
We look forward to working with you and learning about your child through the admission process.
Making solid decisions about a child’s education is one of the most important things parents will do in their lifetime, especially for a child with specific educational needs. It is Noble Academy’s mission to empower students with learning differences to pursue their highest potential within a comprehensive, supportive educational environment. Please take a look at who our students are in grades 2-12 and the step-by-step process, along with procedures, that will follow. Please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office if you have further questions.
Who Are Noble Academy's Students?
Our students are incredibly unique, while all benefiting from the Noble Academy program. Characteristics of a typical Noble Academy student are:

Difficulties in one or more of the following areas:

How are applicants evaluated?
Through our inquiry and application process, students are evaluated to ensure they are a good fit with Noble Academy. These characteristics include a willingness to try a new school environment, the ability to get along socially with peers, have collaborative relationships with teachers, remain open to the learning process, and adhere to our community and behavioral expectations.
Noble Academy does not provide therapeutic services, and we do not support special behavioral accommodations.
Step 1: Online, Telephone, or Personal Inquiry
Complete the online inquiry form or you may contact the Admissions Office by telephone. The Director of Enrollment Management or an assistant will contact you shortly after receiving the online inquiry or a phone message in order to guide you through the next steps. Campus tours are by appointment only so please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office to arrange a date and time to see and learn more about the school.
Step 2: Parent/Guardian Tour of Noble Academy
A parent/guardian tour will be arranged when you are contacted by the Admissions Office. An information packet will be provided to you during the scheduled visit.
Step 3: The Application Process
Parent/guardian must fully complete the online application, attaching all applicable requested documents. A non-refundable application fee of $80.00 is required by credit card or bank account when submitting the online application. The Admissions Office will meet with the Admissions Committee to discuss the applicant’s file. The Admissions Committee, during this meeting, will review information in the file to determine if the school is a good fit for the student. If the applicant’s file displays that the student is potentially not a good fit for the school, the Director of Enrollment Management will notify the parent/guardian.
Step 4: Student Shadow Visit(s)
The student shadow visit allows the applicant the opportunity to experience a regular school day in their current grade level. Shadow visits can range from 1-3 days. Students are expected to participate in classroom activities.
Step 5: Admission Decision
After the Student Shadow Visit, the Admissions Committee will meet to review faculty feedback and make a decision to extend the Student Shadow Visit or accept/not-accept. All communication will be reported to the parent/guardian by the Director of Enrollment Management. An acceptance phone call or email will be followed by an acceptance online enrollment packet that includes the agreement and supplemental information.
* Decision to Not-Accept is based on the Admissions Committee’s observations and faculty feedback in which a determination has been made that the educational setting is not an appropriate match for the student’s needs.
Step 6: Tuition Assistance
An accepted student may be considered for tuition assistance. All parents/guardians requesting tuition assistance must complete the FACTS online application. FACTS reviews the financial data and supporting documentation and using a standardized calculation determines what a family’s contribution should be. At a later date, the Tuition Assistance Committee will then meet to review the FACTS reports and determine award amounts. The FACTS reports only offer a guide and final award determinations are made by the Committee. A family will not be considered for tuition assistance until they have accepted enrollment to Noble Academy by completing the Online Enrollment process along with paying the $2,500 non-refundable deposit and New Student Fee ($1,000 deposit toward tuition and $1,500 for the one-time New Student Fee make up the $2,500).
Tuition for the 2023-24 school year is as follows:
Grades 2-12: $24,900
