Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What grades do you offer at Victory Academy?

A: Victory offers a variety of skill-based classrooms, rather than classrooms based solely on a grade or age group.  However, students must be five years old by September 1st of the enrollment year in order to attend Victory Academy.  There are no exceptions to this age “rule”, as Victory staff has found that younger students have a more challenging time with the routines and expectations of a 7.5 hour school day.

Students, ages three through six, are eligible for the Victory Prep Program.

Q: Where do students go to school “after” Victory Academy?

A: This is a difficult question to answer, as every student and family have their own personal plan in mind for the child’s educational journey.  Some students will transition out of Victory into other private schools or even public institutions.  However, with the growth of Victory into a K-12 model, a good portion of the students will stay at Victory for the duration of their K-12 schooling and transtion years (up through age 21).

Q: Can I enroll my child for Summer term only?

A: No.  Victory Academy is in session year-round, and thus, June, July, and August are the concluding months of an entire school year.  These are not months of camp-like activities.

However, Victory does offer after school classes and therapies.  Students not enrolled at Victory are welcome to submit an application for a class or therapy.

Q: Does Victory Academy ever accept students mid-year or in the summer? 

A: Victory has been at full enrollment each school year by September 1st.  However, there are times (for various reasons) when a spot may become available in a specific classroom.  Please contact Director Tricia Hasbrook if you are seeking an immediate placement.

Q: Does Victory Academy require uniforms?

A: Because of sensory challenges, in addition to varying degrees of motor abilities, Victory students are not required to wear uniforms. 

Q: Does Victory Academy offer any kind of financial aid or scholarships?

A: At this time, all of Victory’s fundraised dollars and grant monies support therapeutic programs, including art, augmentiave communication, occupational, speech and language, music, behavioral, and social cognition therapies.  

In 2015-2016, Victory offered scholarships to multiple families, with scholarships not exceeding 25% of tuition cost.  Please see information under "Tuition" for more details.  Victory will continue to offer scholarships in 2016-2017.

Q: What is tuition for the 2016-2017 school year?

A: Subsidized tuition is $2080 per month, or $24,960 for the entire year.  There are no discounts for paying in full or penalties for paying by month.  Please see information under "Tuition" for more details.

Q: What is the length of the school day?

A: Victory has an open window for morning drop-off, which is 8:30-8:45 a.m. Classes begin at 8:45 a.m. Pick up begins at 3:30 p.m. and ends at 3:45 p.m. Wednesdays are EARLY RELEASE at 2:30 p.m.  Victory offers before and after care, in addition to a variety of after school classes and therapies.

Q: If I miss the April 15th deadline for first-round consideration for admissions, should I still apply for my child? 

A: Yes.  The Admissions Committee takes into account many things when considering student placements, and oftentimes, there are simply not appropriate student applicants for a particular classroom.
