Admission Procedures:

  • All parents should read and understand the policies and procedures contained in the Handbook.  It can be found here.
  • The Application can be downloaded on this website here.
  • Upon return of a completed application, if an interview with the family has not already been held, one will be arranged with either a board member and/or the headmaster.
  • Entrance screening exams are administered to all new students.
  • After the interview and after reviewing all other required materials (as stated on the application form), the headmaster will make the decision whether or not to admit the student(s).
  • The headmaster will then notify the parents in writing with the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, the parents will receive an Enrollment Contract.
  • All financial arrangements between the family and the school must be understood before an admission is considered final.
  • The student’s spot at Bradford Academy will be secured once the contract and deposit is received by the school.

Admission Requirements for the Student:

  • A child must have reached the age of five years by October 15th of the fall in which he would be entering kindergarten.
  • A child entering first grade must have reached the age of six years by October 15th of the fall in which he would enter Bradford (seven years old for admission to second grade).
  • If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his school work and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at Bradford, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if through the administration of the entrance exam or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that he repeat the previous grade.
  • The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school. Therefore, he is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and headmaster in their prescribed roles at Bradford Academy.
  • In general practice, if the student and parents comply with the requirements outlined here, Bradford Academy will admit students of any race to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to all students. Bradford Academy does not unbiblically discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, or national origin in the administration of its policies, admissions, scholarships, athletic, and other school-directed programs.

Admission Requirements for the Parents:

  • Though not required to be Christians, the parents of students in Bradford Academy must have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of the school. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching (not coercive indoctrination) of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program.
  • The parents must be willing to cooperate with all the written policies of Bradford Academy. This is most important in the area of discipline (see Discipline Policy and School Rules) and school work standards, as well as active communication with the respective teacher(s) and administration, and during conflict resolution.
