ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Mirus Academy accepts new students year-round, as long as space is available. The school has a selective application process and is unable to accept every student that applies.  Potential students must meet the requirements listed below:   

  • Age: New students must be between the ages of 13 - 17 years old.   

  • Grade Level:  Students should be in 8th - 12th grade 

  • Citizenship: Mirus is NOT able to accept international students with a student visa.  Students must either be US Citizens or living with parents who are in the USA on a work 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: Students seeking admission should have a grade of 70 or higher for all semester grades on the past 3 years of report cards (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). 

  • Learning Challenges: Mirus can accept students with mild to moderate learning challenges, as long as that student is currently reading and doing math on the grade level that is typical for the student's age.  Unfortunately, Mirus is not able to accept students on the autistic spectrum.  Please read "Can Mirus Accept...?" for more information. 

  • Emotional Challenges: Mirus can accept students with mild to moderate emotional challenges, including anxiety and depression; however, Mirus is not a therapeutic school and cannot meet the needs of students with severe mental health challenges. Please read "Can Mirus Accept...?" for more information. 

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