2017-18 Admissions Process
GATE Academy has an easy 3-step
• Take a tour
• Submit an application & take a test
• Have a tryout
Standard admissions decisions are made in March. (Look to the 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 415-491-4700 or email for up-to-date information.
1. Take a Tour: Since we are a specialty school, tours are personally given to one family at a time, and are for parents only. Tours typically start at 10:00 am and are by appointment. Email or call 415 491-4700 to reserve a spot.
2. Submit an Application & 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 will begin in early November for 2017/18 admissions and END on February 28, 2016.
4. Acceptance Notifications and Contract Deadlines.
We notify applicant families of priority admissions decisions for 2017/18 on March 17, 2017. Contracts are due for 2017/18 on March 24, 2017.
