Draft Your Application

  • It is important to prepare a DRAFT of your application

    This is because the online system will time out after approximately 15 minutes, and it does not notify you. You will need your responses prepared ahead of time in order to complete the application before the app times out.

    • Applications are NOT “first-come, first-served.”
    • You will receive a confirmation email that it has been received the following day, to both the student and parent emails in the application.
    • Be sure to check your spam/junk folder for both email addresses.
    • If you do not receive a confirmation email by the end of the following day, please email the 21st Century Academy office.
