Enrollment Process

How Does the Enrollment Process Work?

Marburn Academy offers rolling admission, which means we have no application deadline. Applications are accepted for students in Grades 1–10*. Qualifying students are admitted throughout the school year, as space allows.

There are four phases in the Enrollment process: 

Phase l 

* Please note that Marburn Academy serves a limited number of students on the autism spectrum whose predominant presenting issues are with dyslexia, ADHD, executive functioning, reading, writing, and/or math. 

Once families contact Marburn’s Admission Office:

  1. The Admission Office will then conduct a phone conversation with the family to determine the first step in student eligibility.
  2. If it appears the Admission process may move forward, and the family would like to continue to the next step, Phase II will begin.
  3. The resulting factors in each Phase will determine whether or not the admission process may continue to move forward.

Phase ll

Submission of:

  1. Intelligence assessment conducted within the past three years (WISC-V or Woodcock-Johnson Test of Cognitive Abilities). Students admitted to Marburn are required to have a full-scale intelligence quotient (IQ) of average or above or a demonstrated potential for average- or above-average achievement.
  2. Most current ETR and IEP, 504, or Service Plan, if applicable
  3. Any educational, psychological, neurological, speech, or language evaluations (Includes Cognitive and Diagnostic)
  4. Student’s most current report card
  5. Copy of writing samples such as paragraphs or stories
  6. Copy of math quizzes or tests
  7. Completed teacher recommendation forms
  8. Completed Authorization to Release Records form

Phase III

  1. A tour of Marburn Academy for the family in conjunction with a student interview, in which your child will meet with the Admission office for discussion and evaluation time.
  2. Completed application
  3. $100 non-refundable application fee

Phase IV

  • A shadow visit for your child of one full day, or possibly two full days, at Marburn. While your child experiences our classroom environment, teachers and the Admission team will evaluate their learning style, behavior, cooperation, and peer group connectivity. Phase IV does not include a shadow visit during the summer months.
  • At the end of the shadow day, your child will be given either a portion of the WRMT (Woodcock-Johnson Reading Mastery Test) or the Key Math assessment, depending upon their greatest academic need. Phase IV does include testing during the summer months; however, shadow days are not available at this time as school is not in session. Should more information be needed, we may advise a shadow day will be necessary once school resumes to make an admission determination.
  • The Admission Committee will review information from each step of the interview process to determine the student’s possible acceptance to Marburn.
