Application Process

Admission Application

Due to the competitive nature of the admission process, we suggest that families apply one full year prior to the year their child would enter the Academy.

Montverde Academy admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to students at the Academy. Montverde Academy does not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, national, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, athletic, and other school administered programs.

The Admission Committee evaluates applicants on the basis of the application form, the applicant’s academic and social history, school and teacher recommendations, a personal interview, and admission test scores. Criteria for admission are also dependent upon the ability and desire to commit to a challenging, academic, college preparatory program and the applicant’s desire to attend Montverde Academy.

Special consideration is given to qualified children of faculty, alumni, and siblings currently attending Montverde Academy.
