The St. Lawrence Academy

Where the path to success begins

Applying to SLA

Parents who wish to enroll their child at the St. Lawrence Academy must complete an application form that is available in the office or online here . The student must also complete an academic assessment. It is administered according to the grade level that matches the placement of the child. The school’s administration will evaluate the applicant's previous school records and review the results of the admission test to determine whether admission is in the best interest of both the school and the child and where that child is best placed.


The school’s administration will determine the need for further information. It may be necessary for a parent interview in making a final determination of admission.


The following documents are necessary for each student's cumulative file: (A FILE MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE STUDENT ATTENDS CLASS.)

  • Copies of previous school records, including the most recent report card.

  • Copies of standardized test scores.

Student Health Records: Copies of the student immunization record from birth until present.
