WELCOME TO ADMISSIONS AT SPANISH GROVE ACADEMY!
Thank you for your interest in Spanish Grove Academy! SGA is one of the the most sought after preschools in San Antonio offering full Spanish immersion to families from all backgrounds. Whether your child is fluent in Spanish now OR you are seeking to immerse them in the language, we look forward to welcoming you to our school.
At Spanish Grove Academy we take this process very seriously. Our goal is provide each applicant family the opportunity to learn as much as they can about the school and have all of their questions answered.
Admissions into SGA is selective and limited however we do offer rolling admissions throughout the entire year, where space is available. If a program is full, you may complete the application steps in order to be placed on the wait list until space becomes available. Our families who began their experience at SGA on the wait list and have since graduated from the program will tell you, it is worth the wait!
Our application process can be completed very quickly. Below are the steps along with a few details about the SGA Admissions process to get you started...
STEP 1: The Tour
We are always delighted to meet with parents and show them around. In an effort to keep our students in care protected and avoid disruptions, our policy is to schedule tours of the school along with play dates, in advance with the Director of Admissions. Typically tours are scheduled with you and your child on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The time of day varies depending on the age of your child and the program your child will be participating in. All tours are scheduled online here. Please note, during the Spring months we receive a higher than normal amount of requests for tours. In order to accommodate all requests, your tour may be scheduled with other families as a "group tour". If you would prefer a private tour or if you have a special requested time for your tour, you are welcome to contact us directly at 210.390.1470 or by email.
STEP 2: The Application
New families are welcome to apply any time by completing an application. The Application fee is $50. If you are experiencing trouble and are unable to complete the application, please contact us directly at 210.390.1470 or by email.
STEP 3: Registration & Enrollment
Should there be space available for enrollment, families will be notified and may secure space by placing a deposit while enrollment documents are completed. Upon completion of all documents, you're now ready to schedule your child's play date as well as your family orientation and interview.
STEP 4: The Play Date & New Family Orientation / Interview
Our families choose Spanish Grove Academy in an effort to provide their child with the best in early learning. Our goal with our stay & play dates is to find the proper match between student and classroom, provide an opportunity for all of our students to thrive while offering our families the best experience possible. Depending on what's more convenient for you, this step can be combined with your family interview and orientation or scheduled separately. All play dates along with new family orientations are scheduled here.
STEP 5: Notification of Admission
Once you have completed all of the steps above you will receive notice by mail regarding your child's acceptance and participation in the program! We look forward to welcoming you into the family of Spanish Grove Academy!
STEPS TO APPLY:
*NOTE: If applying only for our summer program, "CAMP SGA", a play date and family interview are not required. Please keep in mind this program fills up fast so available space is made first to our families currently enrolled at Spanish Grove Academy and then to the community on a first come, first serve basis. A wait list will be created should all spaces for Camp SGA become full. Visit our Camp SGA page for more information.
Our family cannot say enough about how pleased we are that we became members of the SGA family. In our opinion, SGA has raised the pre-school educational bar by providing quality education for its students while creating a loving, safe environment by its very competent staff. SGA provides a warm, learning atmosphere where parents feel they are dropping of their children with their own loving family members.The cost of services of SGA, the quality of staff and educators, the educational concern and development shown toward each student, the personal time and care shown by their flexible operating hours, and the cleanliness of the facilities make SGA one of the best hidden secrets in San Antonio.
