2024-2025 SCHOOL YEAR



Thank you for considering Kemper Academy for your child's education. Our admission process aims to ensure that each student admitted to our school aligns with our values, goals, and educational standards. Below is an outline of our admission policy:

  1. Application Submission:

    • Families interested in enrolling their child at Kemper Academy must submit a completed application form. This form should be accompanied by the application fee of $200 per child (after July 1st, the application fee is $300 per child), which covers administrative costs associated with processing the application.
  2. Documentation Requirements:

    • Along with the application form, families are required to submit the following documents:

      • Attendance Report: A report showing the student's attendance record from their previous school.
  3. Placement Testing:

  4. Interview with the Head of School:

    • Following the completion of placement testing, families are required to schedule an interview with the Head of School. This interview serves as an opportunity for both the family and the school administration to discuss the student's educational goals, needs, and compatibility with Kemper Academy's educational environment.
  5. Final Admission Determination:

    • Final approval of admission will be contingent upon the following factors:
      • Performance on the placement test.
