Application Process

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning January 1st of each new year, until all available spots have been filled. Applications can be downloaded below or picked up in person at the school. Families must submit the completed application and all supporting documents before the application will be reviewed.

Once all application materials have been received and reviewed, the family of the applicant may be contacted for an interview. The parent(s)/guardian(s) and student will be interviewed separately.

Admissions decisions are made by a committee led by the Principal and the President, under the guidance of our Outreach Coordinator, with all components of a candidate’s application considered. All accepted applicants are expected to attend the mandatory Summer Program that year.

All candidates will be notified of any admissions decision that is made regarding acceptance to Serviam Girls Academy.
