Merit Academy Admissions



Merit Academy seeks students who want to learn at a deeper level, students who aren’t afraid of giving 100% of their energy, students who love to travel, students who appreciate the attention and guidance of one-on-one classroom instruction, and students who are willing to dedicate themselves to realizing their full potential.

Enrollment



Before enrolling, the appropriate documents and test scores must be submitted. Student applicants must complete the Student Statement and submit the Recommendation Forms to their current English, Mathematics, Science, and Foreign Language teachers, as well as their principal or counselor. All new full-time high school student applicants are required to take the SSAT, SAT9, CAT, or ERB and have test results sent to Merit Academy. Students applying for middle school and high school must complete all application forms by themselves, in their own handwriting. Parents must complete the Parents’ Application Form, as well as all the application forms for preschool, elementary and middle school students.

Students take an active part in joining Merit. As part of the application process, students meet with the Director to discuss the requirements of Merit Academy. Both parents are encouraged to attend the meeting to ensure that the entire family understands the demands of being a successful student at Merit.

Merit admits students of any race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin to all of the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Merit. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies and other school-related programs or activities.
