“After their child’s been here a few weeks we get calls from parents saying, ‘I’ve got a new kid at home. He’s happier. He doesn’t need homework help. He’d never read before now he volunteers to read.” – Academy Mediator Dana Bloom

Enrolling Your Student
Ben Bronz Academy accepts applications for students between the ages 7 to 18. Applications are accepted at any time throughout the year. Students are admitted when space is available.

The applicant is first asked to observe a class at the Academy and interview with the Intake Coordinator, at which time it will be determined if it is appropriate to proceed further.

To apply for admission of your student,

  1. Call to schedule a visit for you and your student. During your visit you will observe a class and then meet with our Intake Coordinator.
  2. If we decide placement may be appropriate, you will be given an application form to complete. You will also be given a list of documents required to be provide as part of the application.

After the Academy receives and reviews all the required documents, student candidates are invited to spend a full day at the school. Following this visit, the Intake Coordinator makes a final decision regarding admission.

Part of the enrollment process will be for your student to participate in our CyberSlate fluencies program. You will be provided with more information about CyberSlate during the enrollment process.

If you have any questions at any time about how to apply, please call us. We’re here to help your application process go smoothly.

There is an application fee of $100. If you decide to place your student at Ben Bronz Academy, the application fee will be refunded.
