When and how can I register my children?
You can apply online through our website. Applications will be processed in the order received until classes are full. The non-refundable application fee of $175 is due at the time of application.
What is the Enrollment Process?
We follow the steps outlined below in order and will not move forward to a new step until all documents are submitted for us to consider your child for enrollment for the upcoming academic year. It is up to you to procure the required items and either email or mail those to us within the time frames set forth below.
Step 1: Apply online via our website, www.ironwoodacademy.org/apply-now
Step 2: Pay the non-refundable application fee of $175 at the end of the application.
Step 3: Send in the following documents from your child’s current school or umbrella:
A. Transcript or academic record – you will need to request a copy of your
child’s transcript or academic record for their current school or umbrella and
either email or mail a copy of the document to Ironwood Academy.
B. Two (2) letters of recommendation (these can be from two teachers, or a
teacher and an administrator, or a teacher and an outside tutor). You will
need to contact the recommenders of your choosing and have them
complete our online referral form at www.ironwoodacademy.org/rec.
Step 4: Schedule the family interview (this is only done after our receipt of school records and recommendation letters).
Step 5: Placement testing will be done in Math and English/Language Arts on campus at or near the time of the family interview.
New students will be notified by March 1 as to whether or not they are accepted. At that time, a security deposit of $1500 is due within 5 days of acceptance, made payable to Ironwood Academy. The deposit is credited toward the total tuition balance owing on July 1 if paying in full or December 1 if paying in two partial payments. The security deposit is non-refundable if the student does not remain enrolled at Ironwood Academy.
