If you are interested in potentially enrolling your child in the NUA Sparrow Program, we offer monthly tours by appointment starting in October. All tours begin promptly at 8:30am and are for adults only (please, no children). Late arrivals will be turned away. Please note, you must attend a school tour before filling out an application.
Please call Neda Gilson at (619) 462-1853 to reserve your spot. We’d love to meet you and share our wonderful, growing program with you!
Applications for 2018-2019 will be accepted starting December 1st, 2017 and continue through February 28th, 2018. The 2018-2019 lottery will be held in March 2018. Parents or guardians of applicants will be notified of their application number and the option to attend the lottery in person.
Enrollment age cut-offs for Sparrow follow a more traditional Waldorf approach to starting school and first grade readiness. This is unique to Sparrow and does not apply to other programs in National University Academy.
