  • Step One: Get to Know Sayers Classical Academy

    Before applying both parents must attend a Prospective Families Meeting. Please click here to obtain more information, a list of meeting dates and to submit an RSVP form. Also, parents may schedule a tour and classroom visit; this is not a required step in the application process, but is strongly encouraged. To make an appointment please call the Administrative Office at least one week in advance so that your visit may be coordinated with other prospective families. The last available date for a classroom visit will be May 10.
  • Step Two: Complete a New Student Online Application Packet

    After attending a Prospective Families Meeting, please complete a New Student Application Packet for each of your students. This will include a short answer section for the father, mother and each student that is entering grade 6 or higher. There is a $75 New Family Application fee and a $21 per student Online Application fee. The New Family Application fee will be collected during Step Three, and the Online Application fee will be collected electronically once the application packet is complete. After the packet is reviewed and accepted, you will be notified by the Administrative Office (via email and phone) that you may proceed to Step Three.
  • Step Three: Complete the Parent Book Study

    Please come to the SCA Office, submit your $75 New Family Application fee, and pick up a free copy of the book Let Us Highly Resolve: Families Living for Christ in the 21st Century (by David Quine). You will also be given the study guides that correspond to the book (one for fathers and one for mothers). Both parents need to read the book and complete the study guides, returning their completed copy of the section "Pulling it All Together" to the Administrative Office. After this has been approved you will be notified by phone and email of your acceptance and will also be advised to complete Online Enrollment.
  • Step Four: Complete Online Enrollment

    Enrollment has a 3 step process: Online Enrollment, Enrollment Fee, and Enrollment Conference & Tuition Payment. Online Enrollment will occur through RenWeb’s ParentsWeb, which is a private and secure parents’ portal that allows you to view academic and financial information specific to your student. There is a per student Enrollment Fee that is collected electronically at the end of the online enrollment process. This fee changes depending on your enrollment date. Please see Tuition Rates for more details. The final step is the Enrollment Conference; parents will meet with an enrollment counselor to go over the packet, confirm details, sign documents, and pay 50% of tuition. At this point, the enrollment process is complete.
  • Step Five: Schedule Placement Tests (if applicable)

    If your student(s) will be entering grade 5 or above, they are required to take a Math Placement Test and, if they have studied Latin, a Latin Placement Test. Please schedule a testing appointment with the Administrative Office. During this appointment, you may also submit any documentation of the student’s academic history.
  • Step Six: Schedule a Family Interview with the Director (if applicable)

    Parents of students in grades 6 and above will need to schedule a family interview. Families of students in other grades may also be invited for an interview if it is deemed necessary. Each interview is with the Director, and both parents are required to attend accompanied by the student.
  • Step Seven: Complete Training & Testing (if applicable)

    If your student is entering kindergarten through 4th grade, the at-home teaching parent is required to attend phonogram training. These trainings occur during the late spring and early summer. Also, at the end of the summer all students must pass a phonogram proficiency test. Students entering 4th grade must complete a Latin training and also pass an entrance exam at the end of the summer so that they are ready for the 4th grade Latin curriculum.
