The admissions process provides opportunities for you to get to know Brookfield Academy and for the school to get to know your student.
Applications are accepted throughout the school year, and students of all races, creeds, and ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The enrollment process generally begins in the fall one year prior to enrollment. Children entering Little Knights (enrichment program for future Level A) should be three years old by July 1. Children entering Level A (Pre-K) should be four years old by the time they start school in September, and children entering Level B (Kindergarten) should be at least five years old. Students may begin or transfer to Brookfield Academy at any time during the school year, space permitting.
After the steps listed have been completed, the Admissions Committee will carefully review your child's admission folder. You will be contacted by letter in a timely manner about your child's class placement.
Admission Screening for 2020-21: Because of the current situation with COVID-19, we are suspending our usual admission test and using school records and teacher recommendations. Please contact Admissions for more information.
Typical screening activities are:
Level A (Pre-kindergarten): The child spends one hour playing games with a teacher who watches for normal motor skills and the ability to separate from parents and to follow directions.
Level B (Kindergarten): The child spends 30 minutes completing math and word exercises with a teacher who assesses Level B readiness.
Levels 1-5: The student spends one hour completing reading, English, and math exercises.
Levels 6-12: The student spends approximately two hours completing a screening series, including work in math and English.
Admissions screening is always done by appointment. We offer two Saturday admissions screening dates every year. The next scheduled admission screening is Saturday, May 2, 2020. If this date is inconvenient, or you cannot attend, please contact us and other arrangements will be made. To set up an appointment, call the Admissions Office at 262-783-3200.
*A non-refundable $35 application fee ($250 for international applicants) must be received before the application can be processed. Admissions will contact you to explain the next steps in the admission process.
International Applications: Please note that additional application fees and tuition fees are charged for international students, and enrollment is contingent upon successful host family placement. Admissions will contact you to explain the next steps in the admission process.
