ADMISSION & ENROLLMENT

Thinking About Enrolling?

THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS CONSISTS OF FIVE STAGES:

  • 01 Informational Meeting: Click here to learn more about Informational Meeting Options under COVID-19.
  • 02 Registration Form: Basic information used to contact the family when an opening in the school becomes available.
  • 03 Lottery and Waiting Period: Random selection of Registration Forms to establish year-round enrollment order (see lottery policy below).
  • 04 Enrollment: Once an opening is available, the student and family are contacted and an enrollment spot and date is confirmed.
  • 05 Intake: The family is invited to a 30-45 minute meeting with an Academy social worker, in order to better get to know the student and family, and to begin to provide the supports necessary for a successful start.

At Face to Face Academy, we believe strongly that the vast majority of our students are more successful with in-person instruction.  Thankfully, with our small school size and experienced staff, we are currently running a Hybrid Educational Model.  We are pleased to be able to welcome students to attend school in the building for 2 days a week while Distance Learning for 2 days a week.

The Academy is also able to implement numerous safety measures that often go beyond the requirements of the Minnesota Department of Health for Hybrid learning.  Click here to learn more.
