Application Process

The admissions process varies slightly for different grade levels, but the general process is as follows:

  • This process simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted. A non-refundable fee of $375 must be submitted with each application. 

  • All students entering NCA will be required to complete entrance testing. The purpose of this testing is primarily for accurate grade placemnet. If a student test at an alternate grade levle, the administration may make the appropriate grade level change (with parental consent) or may deny admission.

  • Once an applicant's admission record is complete with all requested documents, a completed Entrance test, and referral documents, the Admissions Committee will schedule a Family Interview.

  • When the student file is complete with the requested admissions documents, forms, and records, the Admissions Review Team will review each application.

  • When the screening results are available, your family will have the opportunity to meet with the administration to establish a relationship, learn more about what to expect at NCA, and ask any additional questions.
