Admissions 6-Step Process
Proper assessment is critical to successful placement at Primoris Academy and Primoris Preschool to ensure that your child will thrive in the educational programs. Primoris Academy has a simple 6-step admissions process to ensure every student who attends our school can reach his or her full potential. These steps are:
- Demonstrate cognitive ability
- Day of “shadowing” at the school
- Parent questionnaire and meeting
- Student academic assessment
Each of the five steps is explained below. After these steps, we will be able to recommend whether or not Primoris Academy would be in the best educational interest of your child. Only after acceptance does Primoris Academy request any kind of payment along with the submission of the registration form.
If you haven’t been to our school yet, please visit! We hold “Open Houses” periodically throughout the year (please check our school calendar), but we also provide private tours on a regular basis. To arrange a private tour, just call us at (201) 722-1000 (or use our “Contact Us” form to send us a message anytime).
2. Apply (no cost)
After your tour of Primoris Academy or Primoris Preschool, the next step is to fill out our New Student Application Form. There is no application fee to apply to Primoris Academy or Primoris Preschool. Please use the button below to download our “New Student Application Form.”
3. Demonstrate Cognitive Ability
While we require all applicants to take one of the established intelligence tests (such as NNAT2, OLSAT, CogAt, Wechsler, or Stanford-Binet among others) to determine a baseline cognitive ability, there is no absolute minimum IQ score required for admissions. We know that test scores can only partially indicate a child’s level of giftedness and propensity for success in our program. Please check out the intelligence testing centers located near Primoris Academy.
4. Day of Shadowing
After reviewing the application and intelligence test reports, some candidates will be invited to continue their application process by spending a full day at Primoris Academy “shadowing” students of similar ability. The provides information to both the families and the school about how well a Primoris education fits with the prospective student.
5. Parent Questionnaire and Meeting
Our admissions process continues with a parent questionnaire and meeting with the Executive Director of Primoris Academy to better understand from the parents point of view the gifted aspects of their child. Often, and educational recommendation including acceptance can be made at the conclusion of this meeting.
6. Student Academic Assessment
Finally, each child is has a personal academic assessment session to determine the child’s current academic levels (specifically in reading and math). Additionally you are encouraged to supply optional tests that can help determine proper placement at Primoris Academy including the NJASK and ERB-ECAA tests if available. If your child has taken one of these tests, we would like you to share the results with us during the interview process.
