Application and Admissions


How to Apply

A very warm welcome to the AXIS community. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the AXIS advantage, including our Mission and Vision. In every aspect of our community, AXIS champions students and the AXIS community values, celebrates and actively seeks out to enroll students from a breadth of backgrounds. The process of identifying and selecting a school for your child is important and we are here to help you in that process. We will help you to get to know our school through a variety of pathways including learning about the strengths and uniqueness of our program and providing the opportunity to ask questions and engage directly with the AXIS admissions team.

Prior to being considered for admission, please submit an online application, the required documents and the application fee.

AXIS uses an online application system. Once the online application is submitted, an email with a link to the parent admissions account will be sent. Communication throughout the application process is through the parent admissions account. You may also apply for a sibling from the parent account. Before you get started, review and prepare the required documents listed below. We suggest you scan the required documents and save them so they are ready to be uploaded. When you are ready, click on the Apply button. Once you complete all sections and upload the required documents, be sure to click on the SUBMIT button at the end.
