Admission Process for Grades 1 – 4

Complete Application:
The admission process begins when we receive a completed application form. Each section of the application must be completed and each question must be answered. If a question does not apply, please insert N/A. The Parental Statements are particularly important as PA is committed to maintaining a quality relationship with you, and therefore, your opinions of the parent/school partnership are crucial.

Application Fee of $50 (non-refundable):
The application, along with the $50 application fee (non-refundable) (checks should be made payable to Pulaski Academy), shall be returned to the Admission Office. A portfolio cannot be considered until the application and application fee are received.

Academic Transcripts or Report Cards
Please provide your child’s academic record for at least the past 2 years. If your child is entering first grade, please provide any reports from their kindergarten year.
PA admission test: All applicants entering grades 1-12 must take an admission test. Testing takes approximately two hours and can be completed on designated test dates or weekdays by appointment throughout the academic year. In addition, all applicants must provide the results of standardized tests taken within one year of application.

Standardized Tests:
All applicants must provide the admission office with a standardized test result earned within one year of application. In addition all applicants must take Pulaski Academy’s admission test. Please call the Admission Office at 501.604.1923 for testing dates and times.

Teacher Recommendation
Please have your child’s current school teacher complete the evaluation entitled Lower School. If you are applying during the Early Admission time frame, do not have the teacher complete the evaluation until November 1.

: To ensure confidentiality, the teacher(s) must send or fax completed evaluation form(s) directly to the Admission Office.

Writing Samples: Not required.

Interview or Observation:
A student interview is preferred but may not be required. If the applicant comes to the school for a visit, the interview can be arranged during that time.

Decision letters will be mailed immediately following the Admission Committee meetings in December and February, or any called special committee session.
