Parent Meeting

Student Placement Testing
We desire for incoming students of any age to thrive at Mars Hill Academy. All prospective students are tested to determine the grade level and classroom in which they will be most successful. Upon receipt of application, parents will be contacted regarding their parent meeting and student's testing date and time. Test results will then be discussed with parents and the Grammar School or Rhetoric School Principal as appropriate.

Applications will be accepted for Priority Enrollment from October 1 through January 31. Admission decisions will be made and parents notified by mid-February. Applications received between February 1 and April 1 will then be processed, with final admission decisions made and communicated to parents by mid-April. Applications received April 2 and after will be accepted on a case-by-case basis, space permitting.

A non-refundable application fee of $50 per student ($150 family maximum) is required with the enrollment application. This application fee includes incoming assessment.
