Admission to Colleton Preparatory Academy is by formal application and achievement testing. Transfer students must also provide transcripts and recent standardized achievement test scores for evaluation before an admissions decision is made. Students transferring from member schools of SCISA that hold advanced accreditation who are achieving at the 60th percentile or higher are admitted upon transfer of records. All other students are evaluated by the Head of School with the advice of the Guidance Counselor. Only those students who have, in the Head of School’s judgment, a reasonable chance of achieving the qualitative standards of advanced accreditation will be admitted.
