The Frederica Academy admission process varies with the grade to which the student is applying. Please see "Application Process" for more information.
In general, the child's performance on aptitude and/or achievement measures, is compared with the performance of Frederica students. Academic and behavioral records from previous schools are weighed and observations from the child's classroom visit are carefully considered. The Admission Committee thoughtfully reviews the information acquired for each candidate to reach a decision in the best interest of each student.
As Frederica Academy continues to be a family school, priority for available spaces is given to qualified siblings and children of alumni. When vacancies in each grade have been filled, candidates will be placed in a waiting pool and accepted as openings occur.
Parents are welcome to inquire about a Frederica education at any time during the school year. The first step is to notify the Admission Director of your interest in Frederica Academy. You may call the Admission Office to request an admission packet and schedule a tour of the campus. You may also request information regarding the financial aid application process at the same time. Frederica Academy's financial aid is "need blind" and does not play a role in the decision making process for admission. To learn more about financial aid, click here.
