Thank you for your interest in Brighter Horizons Academy! We are delighted that you are considering our Academy for your child’s education and the Office of Admission is here to assist you in your application process.
Brighter Horizons Academy’s admission process and criteria aim at considering each applicant holistically. Our decisions are based on the evaluation of the applicant’s values, character, academics, behavior, self-motivation, and citizenship.
Before filling out our online application, please make sure to read through all of the instructions. We also strongly encourage you to attend one of our Admission events or to contact us and schedule a personalized tour.
For the 2020-2021 academic year admission applications, we highly encourage families to meet our priority deadlines.
What are priority deadlines? As our student body grows, we receive many more applications than we have open seats available. We therefore encourage families to apply and complete their admission process as early as possible before our sections fill up. Applicants who will meet our priority deadlines will be receiving an admission decision earlier. We will continue to accept applications after these deadlines and accept successful applicants on a rolling basis, with longer delays.
In order to beat our high peak season enrollment, please complete your application as early as possible. Applications for the 2020-2021 Academic School year opens on November 2019.
