Admissions Online

Welcome to Tuscaloosa Academy and thank you for your interest.  The admission procedure has been established for the purpose of enabling prospective candidates and their families, as well as the school, to learn about each other. Candidate families attempt to learn if Tuscaloosa Academy offers a suitable educational experience, while the school attempts to find evidence reflecting good character, the ability to learn, plus academic achievement and potential, and interest in participating in and supporting school activities. The admission process allows candidate families an opportunity to gain an understanding of the type of educational experience offered at TA.; it also allows the school a chance to get to know more about the candidate and his/her family.

We Look Forward to Meeting You
If you have not already done so, please consider making an appointment to visit. Throughout the year, your family is invited to visit and observe the Academy. Additionally, parents considering preschool are invited to bring their child for an hour visit in the pre-school classes. Children considering grades one - 12 are invited to be our guest for a half-day of classes with an enrolled student acting as a host. These visits are designed to allow prospective students the opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge of what our days include, while parents have the opportunity to tour the facilities and meet with members of the administrative team and faculty.  Visitations may be scheduled by contacting the Office of Admission. A school-wide “Open House” will be held each year.
