The First Academy Admissions Wait Pool

The First Academy has been blessed with growing enrollment. We value our ‘right size’ approach with small class sizes, student to teacher ratios, and scheduling flexibility. There is a predetermined classroom capacity for every grade level in our school.

With a large number of prospective students each year, the number of applicants can exceed the number of seats available in a designated grade level for the current or upcoming school year. Our goal is to maintain optimal class size in each grade level and the wait pool process helps to achieve this goal. The First Academy’s wait pool is an unranked group of students who have been accepted to The First Academy, and who we prayerfully hope will be able to join our school family.

While seats may become available anytime throughout the school year due to life changes (moving, etc), there are key time frames to note in the wait pool process.

We will keep families in the wait pool posted if spaces become available. Please note that we always welcome students to reapply next season if we have not been able to offer them admission from the wait pool.

The First Academy has developed the following process for any family pursuing enrollment in a grade level that is nearing or currently at enrollment capacity:
