Admissions

Brisbane Academy Preparatory School follows an open admissions policy whereby we seek to enroll qualified candidates without regard to race, national or ethnic origin, handicap or religion.

Our School looks for candidates who demonstrate a desire to learn and do their personal best. . . a willingness to become an active part of and eager contributor to a dynamic learning environment.

    • The student is qualified as to their willingness and desire to learn.
    • The interviewer looks for any potential behavioral problems and/or learning disabilities*.
    • We also ascertain the commitment of the parent(s) and/or guardian(s) as to their active support of both their student(s) and the mission and focus of our School.
  • Those candidates with only minor learning disabilities or low discipline problems may (depending on the individual circumstances) be accommodated at Brisbane. *We do not, however, have the resources necessary at this time to provide for the needs and nurturing of students with either severe discipline or learning disability problems.

What is best for this child? – “If You Love Them, They Will Learn.”
