Admission decisions are made by an Admission Committee from Salisbury Academy. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of their pre-assessment results, developmental readiness, academic records, teacher recommendation(s), and student interview and classroom observations. Salisbury Academy looks for evidence of motivation, intellectual curiosity, range of interests and abilities, and especially the potential for academic and personal growth.
All aspects of a student’s application are reviewed in light of space availability. Among qualified applicants, preference is given to children of alumni, siblings of currently enrolled students, and children of faculty and staff.
