Application Materials For custom-School Students
FOR PRIORITY ADMISSION, ALL APPLICATION MATERIALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY FEBRUARY 15, 2017.
Non-priority applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis after all priority applications have been reviewed.
Please review all application materials and application instructions (at the end of this page) before starting your application.
The written application is a crucial component of your application. We are a very unique learning environment and want to make sure we're a good fit for students and students a good fit for NOMAD. The written application is our first step in getting to know your family and your student.
NOMAD would like to be able to communicate with your student's current school. To allows us to do this, we ask parents to fill out the following form by hand and mail the top portion to us and provide the bottom portion to your student's current school. If you are currently indie/home/micro-schooling, please notify our admissions team at Taylor@sf-nomad.com.
A great way to understand a kid as a learner is to hear about them from an educator. Please have one or two current or former teachers fill out our online teacher evaluation form - these are done online and do not need to be mailed in. By using our online evaluation form, you are waiving the right to review the recommendation. If you do not wish to waive your right to review, please email the admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will email an evaluation form directly to your recommender. The recommender will be asked to return their evaluation form in a sealed envelope with their signature across the seal. After the admissions process, the recommendations will be mailed to your home. If you are currently indie/home/micro-schooling, please ask an educator/tutor who knows your child as a student to give a recommendation.
If you would like to be considered for NOMAD Tuition Adjustment, please fill out our 'Tuition Adjustment Request Form' and submit it with your student's application.
We strongly encourage families of all socio-economic backgrounds to apply.
Please include a check for $50 with your application. Checks should be made out to 'NOMAD Education'.
Email admissions at email@example.com to request waiving this processing fee.
The written application and teacher recommendations are submitted online. All other materials must be submitted in one large envelope. Applications should be complete before materials are sent to NOMAD.
