"How can ASUA help my child?"

Admissions are on a rolling basis and applications are accepted at any point of the year. We encourage families to apply during the school year for maximum efficiency and ability to conduct school visits.  Please keep in mind that our office is closed for the month of August and, while we do conduct tours during our Summer Extended School Year Program, it does not provide a sufficient picture of our regular academic year programming. 

Our application process begins with a tour. On this tour, prospective families are able to gather information about our programming as well as gain valuable information about the admissions process. After the application materials are received, school and home visits will be scheduled. Admissions decisions are usually made within two weeks of completing all of the admissions criteria. A Step Up Academy, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to admit or decline an applicant.

All interested families must fulfill the following:
 

  • Come for a Parent Tour

  • Schedule and complete a current school observation, a ½ day visit to A Step Up Academy, and a home visit, if deemed necessary by our admissions directors

  • Complete an application

  • Pay the non-refundable registration fee of $35 payable by check or money order the decision of a placement at A Step Up Academy.

  • Submit all current and recent IEP’s, evaluations, reports, and any other documents that would be relevant to the decision of a placement at A Step Up Academy.

A Step Up Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and load programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
