About the Process

Stargate School’s Admissions 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. Learn more about the Admissions Process
