Since December 1st the 2016-2017 student application window has been open. There is a chance to become a Firewolf and be part of the pack.
It is not only for Freshman, but for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors as well. Next year will be the first time that Samueli Academy has all 4 grades.
About 20 students will have siblings coming next year. Siblings of Samueli Academy students get “dibs”, but they still have to apply. “I’m kind of excited that my brothers coming next year because I usually don’t see him, since we go to different schools,” said Nayeli Jimenez, a Junior. It is a key component to apply even though you are certain you will get accepted. “If you want to go to Samueli Academy and you don't apply, you cannot get in,” said Principle Anthony Saba.
“There are around 500 students that will apply, we can take as many as we want, after a week we already have 50 applicants”, said Principle Anthony Saba. This means if someone wants to apply, they should apply now because it's better to be safe than sorry.
Mr. Saba said, “You should have multiple options, don’t just apply to Samueli Academy because we have to many applying you might not get in, so have a plan B.”
Samueli Academy is a really good option for a high school, so apply now and spread the word! Here is the website you can apply: http://www.samueliacademy.org/admission.php.
To apply, everything in the application must be filled out and turned in on time. The lottery for incoming freshman will take place in early March and students who will be accepted will be informed right away. Incoming 10th, 11th, and 12th grade applications will be added to the waiting list and informed if a spot has become available. Good luck future applicants!
