HOW TO APPLY

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.



While the admission process may vary slightly according to the age and grade of each child, admission at Beaufort Academy typically includes the following steps:
