We invite you to become part of the Mirus family!


Mirus Academy accepts new students year-round, when space is available.


The school has selective admissions to ensure that all students are able to succeed and thrive in Mirus Academy’s unique environment.  Potential students should meet the requirements listed in the “Admissions Requirements” section below.  


NOTE: On occasion, the Mirus admissions team may determine that a potential student is a good fit for the school despite one or more requirements not being met; in this circumstance, the student may be accepted with probationary status.  


  • Age: New students must be between the ages of 13 - 17 years old on the first day of the school year.   

  • Grade Level:  Students should be in 9th - 12th grade and enrolling in a grade level that is no more than one year behind the grade level that would normally be expected for the student’s age.  (note: 8th graders may be accepted on a case-by-case basis) 

  • Citizenship: Students must either be US Citizens or living with parents who are in the USA on a work visa. Mirus is NOT able to accept international students traveling with a student visa. 

  • Testing: Mirus Academy requires applicants to have scored at the 50th percentile or higher on previous standardized tests (STAAR, ITBS, Stanford, Terra Nova, etc).  If a student does not have recent standardized test scores, Mirus may require testing as part of the admissions process.  Mirus does not require the ISEE, but accepts the scores if they are available. 

  • Report Cards: The past 3 years of report cards should indicate that all classes were passed for the semester/year (note: We are aware that Covid caused many educational disruptions; please communicate with us if Covid affected your child's ability to pass their classes). 

  • Disciplinary History: New students may not have a history of suspension, alternate placement, expulsion, or illegal activity within the past 3 years. 

  • Special Needs: Mirus accepts students with physical, emotional, and educational challenges in the “mild to moderate” range, as long as that student is on grade level, does not require modified curriculum, and is otherwise a good fit for Mirus’s unique learning environment. 

    • As a microschool, Mirus does not have diagnosticians or specialists on staff; therefore, the school is unable to provide any therapeutic interventions and is unable to accept new students who are experiencing mental, physical, or emotional health symptoms in the “moderate to severe” range.

    • As part of the admissions process, Mirus may request a consultation or letter from the students’ physician or therapist, confirming that Mirus will be able to meet the academic, emotional, physical, and/or social needs of the potential student.

    • Please read "Can Mirus Accept...?" for more details. 

Non-Discrimination Policy: Mirus Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, national/ethnic origin, religion, sexuality, gender, gender expression, or any protected group in its admissions policies, educational programs, or employment procedures.
