Application Process Breakdown

application
    Follow this simple step-by-step guide to submitting an application to the Academy of St. Louis for your child.  We welcome all students and their families to tour our school and meet our staff!  We hope to provide the perfect environment for your child.
  1. Family makes an inquiry online or over the phone.  This initial conversation will happen between the prospective family and the Executive Director and/or ASTL Administrative Staff, during which the family will be invited to visit the Academy for a tour.
  2. Family comes to Academy of St Louis for a tour to meet the faculty, staff, and students, bringing with them a summary report of their child’s disabilities including strengths and weaknesses.  At the end of this meeting, the family will receive an application packet and necessary document checklist.  
  3. The prospective family will submit their application, along with the necessary psychological and educational testing documentation, previous school transcripts, and application fee of $750 for review by the administration.  ASTL also has the option of requesting documentation from previous schools on the student’s behalf.
  4. Academy of St Louis has a rolling admission process as space allows, accepting applications year round.  That being said, re-registration for previous students is due the first Friday in March each year.  Once the new student application and documentation are submitted, we review all information and determine acceptance.
  5. The student’s family will receive a formal acceptance letter via email or post.  Once the student has been accepted, the family must provide the school with a completed ASTL physical exam form and an updated immunization form.
