2017-2018 Admissions Process
GATE Academy has an easy 3-step
• Take a tour
• Submit an application & take a test
• Have a visit day/tryout
Standard admissions decisions are made in early March. (See right column for our current Admissions Timeline.) Qualified students may be admitted mid-year, if space is available. Please call us if you are interested in mid-year admissions.
Come visit us at our annual open house in January. To request information or to schedule a tour, please call or email for up-to-date information.
1. Take a Tour: Since we are a specialty school, tours are given to one family at a time, and are for parents only. Tours are by appointment only and typically start at 10:00 am. Email or call to reserve a spot.
2. Submit an Application and Have your Child Tested
You may submit an application and schedule a test as soon as you have had a tour.
3. Student Tryout
After you have submitted an application and once your child has been successfully tested, we'll contact you to schedule your child's tryout days at GATE. These tryout days let your child get acquainted with us and vice versa. Tryouts for 2017-18 admissions will begin in early November and end on February 28, 2018.
4. Acceptance Notifications and Contract Deadlines.
We will notify applicant families of priority admissions decisions for 2017-18 on Mar. 16, 2018. Contracts will be due on Mar. 23, 2017.
