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.  Applications are accepted starting in October for the following academic year, and they are processed as received.  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, they must write a short essay and take an admissions test. Applications for grades 4-12 are considered.

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 PDF to an official from your child’s current school.  You will need to fill out the top portion before you give it to them.   Click here for the Request for Academic Records.
  3. Submit a letter of recommendation from a current teacher. If the applicant is home-schooled, a coach, religious educator, or other non-family member who works with the applicant can complete the form. You can forward them to this link: Teacher Recommendation Form
  4. Take the admissions test.  The admissions test takes one hour and can be scheduled by calling (540) 635-0622 or by registering online here.  

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

Parents are notified of the school’s decision within two weeks upon completion of all steps of the admissions process.
