Admission Process

Unlike many independent schools, Currey Ingram Academy offers rolling Admission. This means we have no application deadline and can always begin the Admission process whenever you are ready. However, candidates who apply early in the school year will be given first priority for Admission and, often, financial aid. Please see the Steps to Apply below and let us know if we can help in any way.

    Mission-appropriate applicants are invited on campus for individualized shadow days. All prospective students are expected to participate in classroom activities and complete all homework, if given. Lunch and a snack will be served in the dining hall at no charge. Based on a candidate's grade level, student visit days are as follows:
    • Pre-K students applying for kindergarten will be observed in his or her current school setting, if applicable.  A subsequent visit will be scheduled if the Pre-K student is determined to be a potential match.
    • Current kindergarten students or students applying for first grade visit for a half day.
    • Students in grades 2-8 will visit for two days.
    • Students in grades 9-12, day and boarding, will typically shadow for one day.

    The Admission Office will call you within a few days after the student visit to relay an Admission decision. If your child is a match but the class is full, he or she will be added to a wait pool.

  • Wear a face covering while on campus.
  • Have their temperature checked and complete a health screening by an admission team member.
