 New Student Online Application

 

There is a $25 non-refundable application fee that is due when submitting the application, payable online only with a credit card. The school accepts Visa and MasterCard.

 

In addition to the application form, the following documents must also be submitted to the school office:

 

  • Two recommendations forms; one from a former principal or teacher and one from a non-relative adult (new students only)

Returning Student Application

 

Transcripts

 

All new students applying to PSAA need to furnish a transcript record of the completion of their last education grade level. Entering freshmen need to show evidence of completion of eighth grade. Acceptance will be probationary until these records are complete and on file. Grade placement may be delayed until previous transcripts are received.

 

Physical Examinations and Immunizations

 

Physical examinations are required for all new students. They are also required for all students participating in the sports program, and are due prior to the first practice. The physicals are valid for two years. Washington State law requires that no student be admitted to school without a completed Washington Certificate of Immunization Status on file.

 

Parent-Student-Administrator Conference

 

All new students must attend a conference with their parent(s) and an administrator of PSAA before the student’s application can be completely processed.

 

Admissions Committee

 

After the complete set of application forms and fees are turned in, the application is ready to be processed through the Admissions Committee. If the student is new to PSAA, former school records will be taken into consideration at this time. 

 

Application Holds

 

An application can be delayed for processing through the Admissions Committee for the following reasons:

 

1) The application forms are not completely filled out and/or signed,

2) The correct application fee is not paid in full,

3) The records from a previous school have not been obtained for a new student, and

4) A balance on an account from a previous year at PSAA or other SDA school has not been paid in full. 

5) In the case a class is near its maximum number of students accepted for that grade level or class, a place cannot be reserved for students whose application is being held.

 

Application Holds

 

If an application is delayed from processing through the Admissions Committee, make sure you have done the following steps:

 

1) Completed, signed and filled out all application forms

2) Paid the full application fee

3) Requested records from a previous school 

4) Paid the balance left on previous year at PSAA or other SDA school

 

It is important to remember that students can only be accepted for their grade level or class after their application has been processed. 

 

School Board International Student Applications

 

Students who wish to apply to PSAA should first contact the school's International Student Coordinator to determine if space is available in the desired grade level. Applying students should have a moderate level of English proficiency. TOEFL tests will be used to determine and monitor student English language proficiency and development.

 

Financial Contract

 

Through the application process a Financial Contract must be signed by the individual(s) responsible for the student’s account. The person(s) responsible for the account are designated as the financial sponsor of the student. Financial sponsors can sign their Financial Contracts by contacting the Business Manager at PSAA. 

 

Qualifications for Admissions

 

PSAA is open to students who desire a Christian education and who are serious about performing at their very best. Students who apply should be willing to comply with the objectives of the school and live in harmony with its principles.
