Application and Entry Process

Applications are accepted prior to each semester through this simple online application form. Parents/guardians, students, or staff can submit it. For all students who meet the minimum eligibility requirements:

  • An Intake Team staff member will contact the family/student to set up an informational meeting.
  • Unless a student is 18, a parent/guardian must also attend the 30-45 minute meeting.
  • During COVID-19 quarantine, all meetings will be virtual.
  • At the meeting, students will be scheduled to participate in a Shadow Day, in which the applicant spends the day attending classes with a Shabazz student. During COVID-19 quarantine applicants are invited to take a Virtual Tour of Shabazz.
  • Our Intake Team will offer a spot to eligible students based on the completion of all steps of the application process and interest of the student.
  • In the event of limited spots, admissions will be based on a lottery system.

Eligibility Criteria

All applicants' individual school records will be reviewed to determine if students are eligible for an informational meeting. The following minimum requirements are taken into consideration during the initial evaluation:

  • Demonstrating an ability to meet the behavioral expectations. A pattern of documented conflict or aggression will be reviewed by the admissions committee to determine eligibility on a case by case basis;
  • Demonstrated ability to comprehend grade level text with accommodations if needed. This will be evaluated through test scores, grades, and types of credits earned. May require completion of reading assessment if we do not have enough information to make this determination.
  • On track to graduate on time or with an additional year of work
