Our Admission Policy is reviewed periodically to ensure its integrity. Recommendations for changes are presented to the Governance Board for annual review and the Board must approve any modifications. All applicants are encouraged to review the Admission Policy.

    • Additional Information

Stargate School’s Admission Policy is a two-step process. The school first seeks to identify qualified students through a defined process and then their name is placed in a lottery for space available placement. Scholarships and other assistance for establishing the required body of evidence are available for applicants. Stargate will also provide assistance for ELL students to assure that language access does not distort this process.
