Admissions

The academic program of Arden Cahill Academy is open to all students of average and above average ability regardless of race, color, sex, handicap condition, religion, and national or ethnic origin. The criteria for placement is as follows: completion of tour, test results, academic and behavioral records, vital records of birth, health, and previous evaluations, date of application, class availability, and personal interview. After reviewing student data, eligibility is determined by the principal; and the parents are informed of acceptance, denial, or conditions of acceptance. Upon notice of acceptance, all fees and tuition payments are due as directed. Students will not be admitted to class unless all accounts are in order.

The first step in the Arden Cahill Academy admissions process is a tour of our campus. Tours are scheduled weekly and will provide you with an opportunity to tour the facility, visit classrooms and to learn more about the philosophy, goals, and curriculum of the academy. During the tour, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions. After the tour you will receive a packet of information that contains additional information about our school, details about our application process, and a schedule of tuition and fees.

Please call us at (504) 392-0902 to schedule an appointment to tour our beautiful campus.


We look forward to hearing from you!
