Southwestern Academy accepts applications throughout the year. Our Admissions Office accepts students for enrollment any time space is available.

To apply, review and complete the Southwestern application. You can either apply online by clicking the link below, or you can download our School Year or Summer application to print out, complete, and mail or email to us.

We also require:

  • $100 Application fee.
  • Three letters of recommendation from current teachers or school officials.
  • Transcripts of a student’s school records for the past three years.
  • Health report and updated immunization records.
  • A required interview in person or through Skype. (Students are welcome to spend a day visiting our classes, and spend the night in the dorms.)

On acceptance, the application contract reserves space in the school. Applicants for the fall are normally selected the prior spring as space is sharply limited, particularly for day students.

International Student Visa:

The I-20 application form for a student visa to enter the United States is sent by Southwestern when a student is accepted and has paid tuition.
