There is a five step process for parents and students to successfully complete prior to a student being approved to attend Compadre Academy
Step 1) APPLICATION - A one page, front and back, application must be completed by the parent and student. If the student is out of the Tempe Union High School District, a transcript of credits must be attached before the applicant will be considered for admission. (All applicants are required to complete the STAR diagnostic tests for reading and math).
Step 2) REVIEW OF RECORDS & APPLICATION - The review is done to determine if Compadre Academy is an appropriate placement for the student based on the admission criteria. The records reviewed may include, but are not limited to the: application, transcript, discipline records, attendance records, test results, referral statement and the student essay on the back of the application.
Step 3) ADMISSION DECISION - Following the review of records, a determination is made by the principal as to the appropriateness of the Compadre curriculum for each student. The records secretary or front office staff will notify the parent(s) of the decision and make arrangements for the registration and orientation process if the applicant is accepted. If the student is not accepted, the parent/guardian will be advised of other educational options.
Step 4) REGISTRATION/TESTING/ORIENTATION - All registration forms must be completed and submitted at or before the registration/testing/orientation appointment. These forms include:
- Birth Certificate
- Transcripts from all educational institutions
- Immunization records
- Proof of Address (Must be one of the following: gas, water, electric bill, lease agreement, or mortgage statement)
- All other registration documents contained in both the District and Compadre Academy Student Policies and Regulations Handbook
Step 5) PARENT REGISTRATION/TESTING/ORIENTATION - During the scheduled appointment, both parent and student will meet with office and guidance staff where the following will occur:
- Testing of students in Reading and Math
- Review of all diagnostic test results (must meet minimum requirements for acceptance)
- Review of all registration documents
- Review of all school policies/rule/regulations
