First Choice: It's a Sandia Prep Family Option

What is First Choice?

At First Choice is a special application privilege for alumni and current families who have decided, after careful consideration and evaluation of all other options, that SPS is their first choice. Our Admission Committee will consider First Choice applicants in the same manner as the regular applicant pool, however, First Choice applicants will be notified in mid-December, whereas the regular applicant pool will hear results in mid-March.

The children of alumni as well as siblings of current students or alumni who will be applying to Sandia Prep in grades six through twelve for the 2017-2018 school year are encouraged to apply via First Choice.
