Admissions Procedure


1. Tour: Interested families may make an appointment to tour the school prior to application and/or the student interview.

2. Completed Application/Records: Return completed application with non-refundable $75 one-time application and testing fee to the NTLA office. Students applying for grades 1-4 must include 2-3 recommendations from adults who have been a part of the student’s development (i.e. teacher, coach, instructor, etc.). You may contact NTLA for an evaluation form or the adult recommending the student may send a signed letter in a sealed envelope to NTLA. The application will not be processed until all parts are received by the office.

Students must be potty-trained before their first day of attendance in Pre-Kindergarten 4.

Please note that all records from the child’s previous school must be provided to and evaluated by NTLA before final admission to the school will be granted.

3. Testing: NTLA requires all incoming students to be tested by the school and the results are given to the family.

4. Trial Day: Each student applicant will visit with members of the NTLA staff when they visit the school for testing. The purpose is for our staff to get to know your child better and to determine if NTLA is the right learning environment for them.

5. Notification: Applicants are notified of an admission decision after all documents are reviewed and interviews are completed.
