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

All inquiries should be emailed to

Admissions for 2018-2019 Major Dates:

The Academy for Science and Design will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year on September 25, 2017. The deadline for receipt of completed applications in hand at ASD is 12:00 pm December 11, 2017. The application can not be accepted via email or fax; it must be an original hard copy. We strongly recommend applicants submit well in advance of this date. Complete applications received after this deadline are not eligible for the lottery, but will be date/time stamped and held should openings be available post-lottery. The lottery is scheduled for January 17, 2018, at 1:00 pm. ASD is targeting late April 2018 to begin making enrollment offers– this is when ASD expects to know how many applicants will be accepted to each grade level.

If you are having difficulties with the application links, please be sure to check your settings. The links will open in a new window so you will want to make sure your popup blocker allows this.   We received 299 applications that are eligible for the 2018-2019 Admissions Lottery. Any application received post lottery will be time and date stamped in the order received and held should any openings occur, but please be aware than no applicant for any grade that applies post-lottery can be offered enrollment before any applicant that was eligible for the lottery, so the chances of any post-lottery applicant receiving an enrollment offer is exceptional unlikely.

Part I - Online Portion of the Application

Part II - Required Handwritten Forms

The application is to be completed in two parts:

  • The first part of the application is to be completed online by selecting the "Part I - Online Portion of the Application" link above.

  • Once the online portion is completed, print the additional forms in "Part II - Required Handwritten Forms" link, complete them, and either mail or hand deliver to ASD in ONE SINGLE SUBMISSION, i.e., all the printed forms/documents at the same time in one envelope or folder with the applicant’s name clearly indicated. If you choose to hand deliver this we ask that you do so on days that ASD is in session between the hours of 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. They may be left with the front office staff who will deliver them to the admissions department. Faxed or emailed applications are not accepted.

Only complete applications (including submission of printed forms/paperwork) will move forward in the process. No exceptions can be made. To be eligible for the lottery, applications must be complete and in hand at the Academy for Science and Design by 12:00 pm on December 11, 2017.  If ASD has more applicants than openings by grade level, there will a lottery on January 17, 2018, at 1:00 PM on the ASD campus to create a priority list for filling those spots. Complete applications submitted after December 11, 2017, will not be included in the lottery,  but will be date/time stamped and held should openings be available post-lottery.

Please note if your child is admitted, additional information will be required, e.g. health records.
