How do you apply to our Waymaker Academy?
How to Apply for Admission
We have 18 limited spots at the academy! This is so we can give your child the most attentive education possible. Here’s how you reserve one of your spots at our school!
STEP 1: TOUR
Come check us out! So you can make an educated decision, the first tour is parents only so you can see what our center has to offer you and your child/children as a place where they’ll feel they truly belong and thrive. Tours are scheduled by appointment only.
STEP 2: PARENT OBSERVATION
You want to know the whole experience when you choose the place where your child will spend so much time away from you! We completely get that, and feel it’s just as important too. After coming in for a tour we invite you to come for a parent observation to witness first hand how our classroom is run.
STEP 3: APPLY
Love Waymaker when you visit? Great! Since spots are limited, the next step in the process is to complete our on-line application and a small non-refundable $75 application fee.. This will secure your child’s place, should we both feel that Waymaker Academy is the right place for your family. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Students are admitted as space becomes available.
We recommend sending in along with your application, past and/or current academic records in addition to recommendations from any instructor who has worked with your child previously. This is so we can be as well-versed as possible and truly get to know your child and their needs before they even are admitted into the school. Not to form a judgment, of course, but to form an open-hearted strategy for the best-customized lessons and activities to create an environment for your child to love to learn, should they be admitted into Waymaker Academy. This is also so we can give you an honest and authentic assessment of whether Waymaker Academy is the best solution for your child.
STEP 4: YOUR CHILD'S VISIT
Once your application has been received, we will invite your child to come in for a visit and spend the morning with us. This gives your child a first-hand experience of daily life in our community and familiarizes themselves with the environment so they feel as comfortable as possible. During this time we offer a complementary observant evaluation to assess if this is truly the best place for your child to thrive. Spoiler alert: They won’t want to leave!
STEP 5: ADMISSION DECISION
We won’t keep you waiting on pins and needles! Families will be contacted shortly after the application process has been completed to notify you if your child has been accepted, and confirm that we know your child will feel successful and truly grow to the best version of themselves here.
It’s as easy as that! We can’t wait to meet you and your family!
