If you are interested in potentially enrolling your child in the NUA Sparrow Program, we offer monthly tours by appointment starting in October 2019. 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.
Applications for 2019-2020 will be accepted starting December 1st, 2018 and continue through February 28th, 2019. The 2019-2020 lottery will be held in March 2019. Parents or guardians of applicants will be notified of their application number and the option to attend the lottery in person. * Please note: Your application MUST be complete in order to be considered for the lottery. Partially filled out application will not be considered.
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.
