Sibling Preference at Somerset Academy
Currently, the Somerset Academy Acceptance Policy gives priority first to transfer students, then to siblings of current students. This presents a problem especially at the Sky Pointe campus as this campus is in high demand for students at other Somerset campuses. Siblings will not be accepted until those transfer students have a spot. With minimal movement in the student base, because most of the students will return next year, it could potentially take years before those siblings are accepted and are able to attend school with their siblings. We are asking the Board to review this policy and make the necessary changes to reduce the hardship that is placed on families under the current interpretation of the Acceptance Policy and give siblings preference.
