Admissions Process

Admissions Process

Our Head of School, Director of Admissions, Director of Intervention and Director of Student Services comprise the admissions committee at New Way Academy. The team strives to meet the specific admissions criteria and identify students who will benefit from the New Way program. The team thoroughly reviews each applicant’s school history, records, diagnostic evaluations and parent input prior to admissions recommendation.

We are no longer accepting admissions for the current school year (2017-2018). Please fill out the form below and our Director of Admissions, Noah Mangus, will contact you to schedule a tour:

We also require the following supplemental information in addition to an admissions application:

Any other professional evaluations that have been administered should be submitted: speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychological evaluations and medical assessments.

Copies of current Special Education records (if applicable): Most recent IPP, MET or 504

Official transcript (high school only)

Please submit copies of all information, do not send your original documents.

Please email or send copies of this information to our Director of Admissions, Noah Mangus, at admissions@newwayacademy.org

The Admissions Committee reviews all required application materials to determine if the student is eligible to proceed with the admissions process. Once information is reviewed, the prospective student and parents meets with the Head of School to discuss the student’s school history and educational needs. The student will have an opportunity to tour the campus during this time. After the initial student interview, the Director of Admissions will schedule a time for the applicant to follow a two-day student experience at New Way Academy. New Way Academy teachers and staff observe the applicant during their visit and offer feedback to the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee reviews teacher observations and makes a final recommendation. The Director of Admissions notifies the parents with the decision of the Admissions Committee.

 

 

Happy voices on the playground, un-puzzled children and teachers. I walk away today feeling whole, hopeful and inspired.
