1. Assume that sending your child to Sandia Preparatory School is financially possible.
Sandia Prep offers tuition assistance for most income levels. In fact, 39% of our current students receive tuition assistance. Investment in elementary, middle, and high school prepares students for a lifetime of academic and career success. Moreover, independent and private schools can provide expertise in securing funding for college when the time comes. Learn more about Tuition Assistance.
2. Start early.
It is often hard for parents to believe that the application process starts around September for enrollment the following school year. The admission process has a few steps, and you will position your child better if you allow plenty of time for your family to complete the application. Learn more about our Application Process.
3. Do your research ahead of time by talking to families who have students at the school.
Ask them about their children's learning, and just as importantly, their overall happiness. Are their children engaged, challenged, and supported? What is the stress-level like? What kind of athletic and extracurricular activities will be available to your child? How are parents included in the school community? Ask families to explain how the school supports academic and personal growth at all grade levels.
4. Don't sweat the test.
Most schools care more about school engagement and performance than just test scores. Putting pressure on your child can create undue anxiety and hinder test performance.
