The actual yearly cost per student is significantly higher and is borne almost entirely through community support.

Are students provided meals?

Breakfast and lunch are provided for all students each school day.

Is transportation provided for students?

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from school each day; however, bus tokens are made available to students who meet specific performance requirements.

What does the admissions process look like?

A student at SUA is enrolled upon approval from the Student Development Coordinator and Student Transition Coordinator following satisfactory completion of the following:

  • Complete the Application Packet.
  • Submit the Application Packet to the SUA Registrar, along with a copy of the student transcripts and immunization records. While we can make requests directly to the student's previous school(s) for information after their enrollment, it is helpful to have this information before the registration process is complete in order to quickly schedule students into classes they most need.
  • Make non-refundable enrollment fee payment of $200.
  • Schedule appointment with the SUA Registrar for the Student Assessment Test, which takes approximately two (2) hours.
  • Schedule appointment with the SUA Registrar for an enrollment interview with the Student Development Coordinator, in which student background information and SUA Policies and Procedures are reviewed.
  • Schedule appointment with the SUA Registrar for an academic planning session with a parent/guardian and SUA Student Transition Coordinator.
