Welcome to Ad Fontes Academy! Education options can be extremely overwhelming.  Whether you’re ready to apply or you have questions, I would love to connect with you personally.
Please register below to attend one of our Virtual Open Houses:

An Open House is the best first step to learning more about Ad Fontes!

Our students are in school, in person, five days a week.  However, to better protect our campus, we are offering Virtual Open Houses for the near future.

Hosted by our Admissions Director, the Open House includes a great overview of a classical Christian education by the Head of our School, information about the application process, reflections from one of our seniors, and plenty of time for Q&As.  Register here.

Please enjoy our virtual tour of the lower and upper school campus. It’s a great way to get many of your questions answered!

Early Application Deadline December 18

We are currently accepting applications for the 2021-22 school year.  Space will likely be quite limited in many classrooms, so applying by the early date of December 18 is crucial in many classes.

Please Request more information and our admissions office will contact you.  We also invite you to register for a Virtual Open House  to learn more about the classical Christian education at Ad Fontes Academy.

Admissions FAQS

While our touring and admissions process may look slightly different during this time, it is our goal to provide every bit of information to help you determine if Ad Fontes is the school for your family.

In addition to attending a Virtual Open House, please fill out our short Inquiry Form. This will give us a chance to connect with you and answer your specific concerns and questions.  And spend lots of time on our website!  It’s full of great information–whether you’re interested in kindergarten or high school, athletics or after-school activities, staff info or our Statement of Faith.

Sending your little one to school all day is a big deal, and you want to learn as much as possible before you send them!  We have devoted a page on our website just for kindergarten families.  You’ll find a video tour of the classroom, reflections from kindergarten moms, a Zoom chat with the teacher, and an overview of the curriculum.

Admissions Process

Families apply to Ad Fontes by creating an online application account. Before applying, we strongly encourage you to connect with our  Admissions Director and attend a Virtual Open House.

Our admissions process is quite thorough, as student records and referrals are needed, and an on-site assessment is conducted with each applicant.  The process also includes a family meeting.  Please take time to read through the Admissions Process page on our website.

Yes.  Our early application deadline is Friday, December 18.  To be considered in the first wave of applicants, a prospective student’s application must be submitted, and the teacher referral and records must have been requested.

We also offer a second early deadline of January 31.  Rolling admission begins February 1.

We do not hold spots with applications.  A contract is offered to a family when the entire admissions process is complete.  Please contact our admissions director admissions@adfontes.com for more information.

All students are assessed one-on-one and in person if possible.  Those in rising grades K-6 work with our educational therapist, and those in grades 7 and above are assessed by our Upper School Director of Student Support.

Students do not prepare for the assessment, as it is rather an evaluation of a child’s readiness in core areas for the grade for which they are applying; primarily math, reading, and writing.

We agree that nothing can take the place of the experience of school for a day. Meeting classmates and teachers is a vital part of an Upper School student’s decision-making process when considering Ad Fontes. During this time, we are doing our best to ensure that applying students still have the opportunity to engage with their potential classmates, even though they cannot meet in person or come to the school. Thanks to technology, we can connect students through Zoom to get to know one another. Friendship and community are essential parts of the AFA experience!

Beth Strachan serves as our Admissions Director. Please contact her at 571-348-0784 or admissions@adfontes.com to ask any additional questions. She would love to share AFA with you!

You can also link to our online inquiry form here, and Beth will contact you directly.
