Applying to Chelsea

Chelsea Academy admits students who show academic promise, embrace the ideals of the school, and desire to develop their potential for intellectual, physical, moral, and spiritual growth. A student’s character and interests are also considered in the admissions process.

Chelsea operates on a rolling admissions basis.  We accept applications starting in October for the following academic year, and process them as we receive them.  For an application to be complete, students must submit the application paperwork, a teacher’s recommendation, their academic records, and the $40 application fee.  In addition, students must write a short essay and take an admissions test.

To apply, please follow the following steps:

  1. Complete the Online Application Form, including the parents’ statement and the applicant’s essay. (If you are a current family applying for a new student, begin the process using this link: Current Family – New Student Application)
  2. Submit at least one full year of grade reports or school records that include the most recent reporting period. An official transcript, if applicable, is required for grades 9-12.  You can email this Request for Academic Records to an official from your child’s current school.  You will need to fill out the top portion before you give it to them.
  3. Submit a letter of recommendation from a current teacher. If the applicant is homeschooled, a coach, religious educator, or other non-family member who works with the applicant can complete the form. You can forward the link (at to the Teacher Recommendation Form.
  4. Take the admissions test.  The admissions test takes one hour and will be scheduled in consultation with the Director of Admissions.

All forms (Application, Academic Records, and Teacher Recommendation) can be downloaded, if needed.

We will notify parents of the school’s decision within two weeks of  completion of all steps of the admissions process.
