Admissions

  • Wayne Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

    Parents wishing to enroll a student in Wayne Academy must make an appointment with the school administrator. Appointments can be made by calling the school office at 601-735-2921.

    No student shall be enrolled in kindergarten or first grade unless he or she has reached his or her fifth or sixth birthday, respectively, on or before September 1 of that school year.

    All students are required by federal law 2650 to submit a certificate of compliance from the Department of Health and Human Services or a physician’s office. (Immunization Certificate Form 12, 121-A, 121-T.)

    The WA Board of Trustees will meet regularly to review current applications along with past records.

    Under special circumstances, the WA board reserves the right to admit a student “on probation” for academic or behavioral reasons. Each case will be determined on an individual basis. It will be at the discretion of the headmaster and the board to determine if the prospective student would be in harmony with the philosophy of WA.

    Students will not be allowed to transfer from an out-of-state school based on failure of a high school exit exam.

    A pilot program for students that are currently home schooled, but would like to graduate from Wayne Academy has been formed. This program would allow students currently being home schooled to have Wayne Academy maintain their grades at a rate of one hundred dollars annually. Acceptance into this program would be based on well-maintained records and board approval. Graduation would be dependent on the student transferring to Wayne Academy and participating in classes on campus no later than the second semester of their senior year.
