Campus transfers will be considered on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the school's administration. Transfers will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis and only if there are openings available at the receiving campus. A parent/guardian meeting with the student's principal may be required to assess whether a transfer is in the best interest of the student, family, and school. Administration reserves the right to deny transfer requests for any reason.
Transfer questions and completed applications should be submitted using the Contact an American Academy Registrar form
(select the option for 'Campus Transfer'). Conversations with school staff, whether in person or in writing, will not be considered an appropriate method of officially requesting a transfer. Completed Campus Transfer Application & Approval
forms can also be submitted in-person at the front office of your current American Academy campus. Forms will be dated and timestamped by school staff upon receipt.
Transfer requests that will take effect at the beginning of the following school year should be submitted no later than November 30th. This will allow our Registrar to reserve an upcoming open seat, if any, for your student at the desired campus before our lottery takes place for the general wait list on December 5th. Transfer requests received after we have begun extending offers to our wait list will receive priority before any additional offers are made to our wait list, but only in the event there are remaining openings at the campus you wish to transfer to.
Applications will be accepted at any time, but may not be processed between May 1 - August 31. Our administration uses this time period to plan and prepare for the upcoming school year and will not be available for application consideration and/or meetings regarding campus transfers.
In most instances, the application process will take 2-3 weeks. If your application is submitted between May 1 - August 31, it may not be processed until September 1.
Class/ability placements that are assigned at the student's current campus may not carry over to the receiving campus. Previous placement is taken into consideration by the principal at the receiving campus, but there may be circumstances that necessitate placement into a different ability class. Please contact the principal at your current and/or desired campus to initiate those conversations prior to submitting a request to transfer to a different campus.
All policies that govern American Academy are applicable at each campus (for example, Uniforms, Grading, Homework Expectations, Discipline, etc). Curriculum and programming are consistent across all campuses, but we encourage you to contact the principal at your current and/or desired campus with specific questions or concerns, prior to submitting a request to transfer to a different campus. Extracurricular and athletic offerings may vary by campus.
