Admissions Process

We are delighted to know of your interest in Beaufort Academy for your child! Because class sizes are limited and the program is advanced for all grades, admission to Beaufort Academy is competitive. 

The goal of our admission process at Beaufort Academy is to help parents make the best educational decisions possible for their children. We work closely with families to assess each applicant’s needs and abilities as well as to determine if we are the best match for each child.

The process is simplest for applicants to the Pre-K and Kindergarten programs who visit the school and take part in basic assessments that help determine readiness to enter the next grade level. The admission process for grades 1-12 is more comprehensive and includes the application, teacher recommendations, an entrance exam, an interview and demonstrated success in the previous academic year.

CONTACT THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE
Because class sizes are limited and the program is advanced for all grades, admission to Beaufort Academy is competitive. Before applying, we urge you to call or email the Admissions office first. In this email or call, please tell us about your child, what your hopes and expectations are for his/her time at BA, and any special needs of which we should be aware of.  Beaufort Academy’s Admission team is readily available to answer enrollment questions by calling (843) 524-3393 (--> 2 --> 1 --> 7) or email bbekemeyer@beaufortacademy.org.
