Application Process

STEP ONE: Visit the Campus

Parents or guardians are invited to contact the Admissions Office to schedule a campus visit. During the campus visit, the interested party will tour the campus, meet with the Director of Admissions, and meet with either a Division Level Administrator or the Head of School. Upon completing the initial tour, parents or guardians may schedule a Shadow Day for their student, which will enable the student to learn more about the school, to attend classes, and to meet students and faculty. 

  

STEP TWO: The Application

To begin the online application process, the parent or guardian will log into the admissions page and submit the following:

  • Online enrollment application

  • Medical emergency card

  • Parental authorization for release of records

  • Non-refundable application fee

  • Certificate of immunization

  • Birth certificate

 

Once the application and required documents are received, the admissions office will request the following:

  • Current transcript (transcripts must be sent from current school office)

  • Academic records

  • Standardized testing records

  • Psycho-educational records

  • Behavior records

  • Attendance records

  • Administrator/teacher recommendations (FBS will mail directly to the school)

 

STEP THREE: Testing

Once the academic records have been received, the records will be reviewed to determine if the student is a candidate for admissions. Students who achieve candidacy will be contacted by the admissions office to schedule admissions testing. Students may choose to test during weekday mornings or during group testing on February 2nd or February 23rd.

 

STEP FOUR: Admissions Decision 

After reviewing the student’s test results, records, and letters of recommendations, the admissions committee will determine if the student is accepted (with or without probationary conditions) or denied.

 

STEP FIVE: Final Paperwork

The admission decision will be conveyed to parents or guardians by a phone call, email, and letter. The parent or guardian will have ten days to respond and to confirm or deny admission. Admission will be finalized when parents or guardians complete the enrollment contract and pay the non-refundable enrollment fee.
