Admittance:



All school programs will be open to all children regardless of race, religion, color, sex or national origin. It will be based upon the Board of Education admittance policy.

Children with special needs requiring trained personnel and/or programs to meet their needs are encouraged to seek services designed for that express purpose.

New Horizons Academy seeks students with the potential to benefit from and to succeed in the school’s unique academic and enrichment programs.

The primary goal throughout the admissions process is to provide information about the school while learning as much as possible about the prospective student. The School considers the benefit of both the applicant as an individual as well as the New Horizons Academy community as a whole.

1. Parents meet with Program Director/Principal and tour the School.

The NHA Director/Principal will introduce the School to parents and inform them of the mission and vision of the School. Parents will learn more about our program and the curriculum taught at the School. This will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions and discuss anything with the Program Director and/or School Head. The tour will provide parents a glimpse of School environment and learning experience.
