STUDENT and PARENT/GUARDIAN INTERVIEW 

Upon review of the listed items, the potential student and parents will be interviewed by administration to obtain additional information and/or to clarify information received by Fortune Academy. Interviews are approximately thirty minutes. 


SHADOW DAY 

Upon review of the listed items, the potential student will shadow at Fortune Academy for a minimum of one day. During the visit, placement will be in classes that are grade and skill-level appropriate. Potential students will participate fully in classroom activities.  Prospective students have the opportunity to meet their classmates and teachers and experience the culture of Fortune Academy.  Teachers will conduct informal reading and math assessments to identify academic strengths and areas of challenge that will be addressed if the student is accepted into Fortune Academy.


ADMISSION DECISION 

After a thorough review of the potential student’s complete application, interview (if applicable), and Shadow Day(s), the Administration will meet and determine:

  • Acceptance: The Administration has found the student’s strengths and needs are an appropriate match to the Fortune Academy environment.
  • Wait List: The Administration has accepted the student (see Acceptance above) however; currently no available openings are listed for the student’s grade and skill level. The date the completed application is received determines the student’s position on the Wait List.
  • Non-Acceptance: The Administration has found that the student’s strengths and needs are not an appropriate match to Fortune Academy’s educational environment.
