Step 1: Online, Telephone, or Personal Inquiry
Complete the online inquiry form or you may contact the Admissions Office by telephone or in person inquiry. 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. A personal inquiry could include scheduling the interview/tour or actually conducting the interview/tour at that time. On Thursday mornings from 9-11 am, the Admissions Office is available for drop-in interviews/tours.
Step 2: Parent/Guardian Interview and Tour of Noble Academy
A parent/guardian interview and tour will be arranged when you are contacted by the Admissions Office. An application packet will be provided to you during the scheduled visit.
Step 3: The Application Process
Parent/guardian must fill out the application completely, attaching all necessary documents required and a recent picture of the student. Return completed packet with a non-refundable application fee of $75.00 in cash or by check to the Admissions Office. The Admissions Office will meet with the Admissions Committee to discuss the applicant’s file and determine if on the surface the criteria for admission is met. The Admissions Committee will also 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 criteria for admission is not met, 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 will be followed by an acceptance packet that includes an enrollment 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 strengths and needs.
Step 6: Tuition Assistance
An accepted student may be considered for tuition assistance. All parents/guardians requesting tuition assistance must complete the TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) online application at www.tads.com. TADS 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 TADS reports and determine award amounts. The TADS 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 returning a signed Enrollment Agreement along with the non-refundable $2,500 deposit and New Student Fee.
Tuition for the 2019-20 school year is as follows:
Grades 2-8: $21,300
Grades 9-12: $22,100
