Frequently Asked Questions

New Students Admissions

Non-refundable Application and Registration Fees are required for each new student. The Application Fee covers the initial admissions process (including admissions testing) and must be submitted at the time of application. After the student application has been processed and the student accepted, there will be additional required paperwork and payment of the annual Registration Fee.

Pre-Admission Testing

New students will be tested prior to entering Atholton Adventist Academy.  Testing assists in planning the educational program and/or grade placement for new students. Transcripts and other official documents from previous schools must be submitted prior to acceptance. New students are placed on a 9-week probationary status. Testing fees are included as part of our Application Fees.

Medical Records

New students are required to present evidence of a current physical examination and an up-to-date Maryland State immunization record within 20 days of enrollment.  Forms are available in the school office.  Returning students are also required to have an up-to-date Maryland State Immunization Form on file. Please note that immunization requirements changed in 2014. Any student not in compliance with the state requirements by the designated time will be excluded from class.

Special Admissions

Atholton Adventist Academy is not equipped to deal with consistently disruptive students or students with serious academic challenges and needs. Students who fall into either category will not knowingly be accepted. When a student with behavioral problems or special academic needs applies for admission, the School Board may choose to grant admission on a probationary/contract basis.  Under this special admission, a contract will be drawn up between the school, student, and parents. It will outline specific expectations for performance and the results for failure to follow contract guidelines. The probationary contract status will be for a specific length of time, such time period to be expressly communicated to the student and parents and stated in the contract.
