Let’s get started!
Applying to New Life Academy is a simple process. By submitting an online application, you are taking the first step towards investing in Christian education for your child. Below is an overview of the process.
Priority Enrollment (October 1 – Dec 21, 2021)
Applicants that submit an application and progress through the enrollment process by December 21, 2021 will be included in our first round of acceptance letters sent by mid-February. With waiting lists in all grades, this is the best time to apply.
Open Enrollment (January 1 – June 30, 2022)
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis while there is space in each grade. Once classes are full, applicants are placed in a wait pool.
Special Consideration (July 1 – Aug 19, 2022)
Applications that are submitted during the summer are considered on a per applicant basis based on availability in each grade.
All mid-year transfers are considered on a per applicant basis.
Steps to Apply
Creating an account in our Admissions Portal is the first step in the admissions process. When you log on with your account you will be able to access the online application. You will need to fill out a separate application for each student you are enrolling.
Once you create your Veracross Admissions Portal account, you will want to use this login page to gain access to your application. You will complete your child’s online application and submit a non-refundable $75 application fee. A helpful checklist is available in the Admissions Portal to keep track of where you are in the admissions process.
New Life Academy wants to make sure as many students as possible experience the opportunity to flourish in a Christ-centered community where they are known, loved, and valued. Variable Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program for grades K-12 that helps with the affordability of a Christian education, thanks to the generosity of our annual donors. If a family chooses to apply, qualifies for Variable Tuition, and funds remain, then tuition will be adjusted for your family’s unique financial position.
Once you’ve created an admissions account, you may begin the Variable Tuition application process. It is encouraged to start the admissions application at the same time as the Variable Tuition application. That way all necessary financial information is available at the time when an enrollment contract gets sent out.
Once your admissions application is complete and all necessary documents have been reviewed by the school, you will be invited to schedule an admissions interview (in person for now). This time is a great opportunity for the Principal to learn more about your student and family. At least one parent and the student are required to attend the interview. Note: Early Ed classes do not do this step.
Offers of acceptance are based on class availability, student fit, and agreement to NLA’s Statement of Faith and Guiding Principles.
For families applying by the priority enrollment deadline of Dec 21, 2021, admissions decisions will be delivered by mid-February following our current family re-enrollment.
For families applying in our open enrollment period or special consideration period, admissions decisions will be granted following the admissions interview, based on available space in the applicable grade.
Once you have been accepted, you will need to sign the enrollment contract and submit an enrollment deposit, applied toward your tuition. All enrollment steps must be completed before your student is officially enrolled and their spot is reserved.
New Life Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, programs, and activities made available to students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletics, or any other school-administered programs.
