What makes a great Sophia candidate?
To be eligible to apply, a student must live in the city of Providence and qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Students are admitted in the 5th grade. Class sizes are small -- approximately 15 per grade. Admission after 5th grade is unusual. Occasionally, there are openings in the 6th grade, and admission is very competitive as we receive many more applications for 6th grade than we can accept. Admission to 7th or 8th grade is extremely rare.
We look for prospective students who are committed to learning and doing their best. While we look for strong transcripts, grades and test scores are only one of the criteria that we review when deciding on an applicant. Teacher recommendations, student and family responses to application questions, and an interview are all important steps in our work to determine eligibility to enroll, and for families to assess whether Sophia Academy is the right school for their child.
A great Sophia candidate has a positive attitude, the potential to succeed in an academically challenging environment, and possesses curiosity and commitment to her studies. An ideal candidate also shows the desire to grow and mature outside the classroom.
