Admissions Process

  1. Schedule a Visitation/Admissions Day. To personalize the process, we invite prospective students and their families to schedule a time to visit our school. We encourage applicants in grades 1-12 to spend a day in the classroom. During this visit, your student will attend a class in the appropriate grade level, allowing our staff to get to know your child and answer any questions that you may have about our school. Designated visitation days are also available to prospective Pre-K and Kindergarten students.
  2. Complete Online Application. Submit a completed application along with the $500 fee.
      1. Interview. New students must schedule an interview with the principal.
      2. Request transcripts to be sent from your student's current school.
      3. Submit three Recommendation Forms. This is integrated into the Online Application. You simply provide a name and email address for each reference.
      4. Placement testing is conducted with new students to establish their readiness for the grade level to which they are applying.
  3. Admissions Review. Once the application and other appropriate documents have been submitted, the Admissions Committee will review them and inform you of your student's admission status.
  4. Complete Online Enrollment Packet. If admission is approved, then online enrollment and the following must be received by Richmond Academy prior to entry into the classroom:
      1. VA School Entrance Health Form
      2. Original birth certificate must be viewed (Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade only)
      3. Payment of tuition (or enrollment in tuition payment plan) and registration fees must be received
