6 Steps to Becoming a Patriot

Step 4: Admissions Test
Once the application, application fee, and all required documents are received by the academy, families will notified of the date for the student admissions test. The prospective student should plan for the admissions test to take approximately one hour.
Step 5: Family Interview
Upon completion of the student admissions test, the office of admissions will schedule a family interview. Both parents/legal guardians and applicant are required to attend. During the family interview, the admissions counselor will gain a greater understanding of the academic, spiritual, and extracurriculuar goals for the applicant. The admissions counselor will also take this opportunity to review the results of the admissions test. Upon completion of steps 1-4, the Office of Admissions will meet as a committee and make a decision regarding admissions.
Step 6: Begin the Journey
Upon acceptance to PCCA, parents will receive an acceptance letter in the mail, which will be followed by an email with instructions on how to complete online enrollment. The family will be responsible for completing and submitting the online enrollment packet, along with the applicable enrollment fee. The deadline for submitting the online enrollment packet is 10 business days from receipt of the acceptance letter. If the online enrollment packet is not submitted within 10 business days, the student's spot may be released to another applicant. With some classes at 90+% capacity, applicants are encouraged to submit the online enrollment packet by the deadline.
