The Admissions Process
Merritt Academy employs a rolling admissions process, meaning that new students are enrolled as space becomes available. There is no application deadline, however, the majority of new students will register in February each year to start the following August. Merritt Academy's enrollment process is outlined below:
Tour by Appointment - Customized to your individual needs. Please contact Amy Pernick, Director of Admissions at 703-539-8394 or at AmyP@MerrittAcademy.org.
Application- By submitting a completed application, along with the $50 application fee and proof of identity (birth certificate, passport, etc), your student will be placed on the waiting list for their appropriate age group.
Child Assessment and School Visit (for students entering grades K-8) - Prospective students attend class and meet with the School Counselor for an interview and assessment.
Play Date (for students entering the Preschool Program) - 30 minute play date with the Preschool Director for placement into the appropriate classroom.
Contract - When an open space is identified in the appropriate age group, a contract is offered. This contract, along with the annual enrollment fee secures your child’s space at Merritt Academy
