- Student Evaluation Form (K-8) – Applications for preschool do not require this form. If your child is applying for kindergarten – 8th grade, please give the student evaluation form to the child’s current teacher. Request that your child’s teacher complete this form and submit it with your child’s transcript to Everest Academy.

3. Parent Interview – Both parents are asked to meet with our principal, if possible, in order to get to know the family and go over placement and enrollment. The interview will be scheduled once your child’s assessment testing is completed.
4. Notification of Acceptance – After the parent interview has been completed, the
Admissions Committee will come to a decision about your child’s application and
send a letter of notification. At this point, you will have two weeks to complete the enrollment contract and make the registration payment.
