Thank you for your interest in the Academy for Science and Design! 

Please note:  Enrollment for this academic year (2018 - 2019) is closed and there are no open seats available.  If a seat does become available, we will be offering enrollment to a student who completed the application process last year and is currently on our wait list.

Admission dates for the 2019 - 2020 school year:

Any application received after the application deadline will be time and date stamped in the order received and kept on file should any openings occur, but please be aware than no applicant for any grade that applies after the application deadline can be offered enrollment before any applicant that was eligible for the lottery.  The chances of any post-deadline applicant receiving an enrollment offer is exceptional unlikely.  We highly recommend completing and submitting all portions (both online and paper) of this application well before the December 10, 2018 deadline.  Incomplete applications received before the deadline, but not completed before the deadline, will not be given an extension.
