If your child is new to Academy, enrollment begins with the submission of IEA’s portfolio-style application. Even if your child has applied to or participated in other IEA programs, please select “I am a new Academy student.” If your child has taken Academy classes before, you may select “I am a returning Academy student” on the first page, allowing you to update your information then skip to selecting your courses.
Note: Academy is a community of advanced and curious learners who are eager to dive deep into topics. Applicants are not required to be identified as gifted, and assessment scores and transcripts are optional. We encourage families to include as much relevant information in the application as possible to help us get to know your child better and understand how we can best support them.
If you have any questions about the application or enrollment process, please contact an Academy team member at Academy@EducationalAdvancement.org or (626) 403-8900.
“I DID NOT KNOW MOST OF THE MATERIAL I HAVE LEARNED AND I AM NOW CONFIDENT IN MY SKILLS. THE CLASS HELPED BUILD MY UNDERSTANDING OF ALGEBRAIC CHEMISTRY BY APPLYING THE MATH TO COOL EXPERIMENTS, WHILE SCHOOL WOULD JUST TEACH THE MATH OR THE CHEMISTRY WITHOUT EXPLANATION.”
