There is incredible interest in Merit Academy. Because of the high demand, it is important that families choice-in to Merit Academy because they embrace the classical, Core Knowledge, vision and model upon which Merit Academy is founded, not because they wish to choice-out of their current school.


Merit Academy students and families shall understand and commit to the vision, mission, expectations, programs, and processes that so many of our community members desire.

This is an expression of interest form, not a registration form. This is a confirmation of your interest in a seat for your child(ren) with Merit Academy for the 2022-2023 school year.


Current students will confirm their interest with a different Intent to Return form in March.

Current students have seats secured for the upcoming year.

If more students are interested than seats available for the 2022-2023 school year, a lottery will commence in March.

Students who have a seat available will be informed of that seat offering. At that point, families will have three days to confirm or deny acceptance and will then complete the registration process for the 2022-23 school year.

Merit Academy's expectations and guidelines can be found in the student handbook, student expectations, and uniform policy linked on the Families page.
