Dates and Deadlines

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

Please note:  Enrollment for this academic year (2019 - 2020) is completed 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 2020 - 2021 school year:

Admissions Opened on
September 9, 2019
The application packet and the Information Session Registration Form are available on this website.

Admissions Information Session
The sessions for the 2020 2021 application process were held on

These sessions ran from 9:00 am to 11:30 am.
The applicant and one parent should plan on attending one of these sessions.
Due to fire and safety codes, registration is required and space is limited.

Application Deadline
(To be eligible for the exempt and general lotteries)
Monday, December 16, 2019 at 1:00 pm - any applications received after this date will be date and time stamped.  The applicant will be added to the waitlist behind all applicants that were eligible for the Admission lotteries.

Applicants do not need to attend the lottery.

Any application received after the deadline will be time and date stamped in the order received and added to the waitlist behind all applicants that were in the Admission 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 16, 2019 deadline.  Incomplete applications received before the deadline, but not completed before the deadline, will not be given an extension.
