How to Apply
Phone Call- Begin the application process with a phone call to our admissions department for either the Boca/Delray campus or the Plantation campus. At that time, the Admissions Director will give you information on our programs and request information regarding your child’s educational needs such as a current IEP and/or a Psychoeducational Battery. From this information we will be able to determine if our program will be of benefit to your child.
Campus Tour- Prospective parents are invited to privately tour the Boca/Delray or Plantation campus with an Admissions Director. Tours are available Monday through Friday by appointment.
Application- Please complete the attached admissions application and submit it. Please note that students in sixth grade or above have their own section to complete. If you prefer a paper copy, you may print the attached PDF or you may call our admissions office and have a copy mailed to you.
Letters of Recommendation- Please use the attached forms. We require two teacher Letters of Recommendation and one administrator Letter of Recommendation. The letters must be sent directly to American Academy via an email attachment or by fax from the current school or the letters may be placed by the school in a sealed and stamped envelope to be mailed by the school or handed to the parent. If you prefer, paper copies of the Letters of Recommendation, please call the office and they will be mailed to you. The Admissions Department will call your child’s school to verify attendance and discipline records.
Testing-The Admissions Department requires ability and/or readiness evaluation testing for all applicants. Once American Academy has received all the application information, the Testing Coordinator will call to schedule testing for your child. There is a $100 fee for testing. The Admissions Department will review the results of the testing with the parents. When an applicant is accepted for admission, the parent will receive an enrollment packet and contract. In order to secure a place, the enrollment contract must be executed and the appropriate deposit made.
