Step 4: Admissions Assessment/ New Church Overview (NCO)

The Admissions Assessment/New Church Overview is offered monthly and is required of all applicants and parents*. While your child is completing the assessment, parents/guardians will attend New Church Overview, led by our school chaplain, Rev. Barry Halterman. This is an opportunity to understand the faith that will be an integral part of your child’s life at ANC. When applicants are finished with the assessment, they will join their parents for the final portion of New Church Overview.

*Parents who have previously completed a New Church Overview are not required to attend.

*The fee for the application includes the academic assessment and must be paid before taking the assessment.

Step 5: Shadow Day & Interview

A Shadow Day is the perfect way to get to know ANC and to see if it’s the right fit for your child. Shadow Days can be scheduled after you have done a campus tour with the admissions office or attended an in-person admissions event. To schedule a Shadow Day, contact the admissions office at 267-502-2539 or admissions@ancss.org

Students and their parents will participate in a short interview following the conclusion of the Shadow Day. 

Step 6: Financial Aid Application (optional)

Financial aid grants at ANC are strictly need-based. To be considered in the first round of financial aid awards, new families must complete the FACTS grant and aid application and submit the required supporting financial documents by February 10, 2024. The majority of financial aid is distributed in the first round. To learn more and apply for financial aid, visit the Tuition and Financial Aid page. 

Virtual Application Process (International Students): 

The Academy of the New Church offers a small International Program. All international students must have a local guardian. ANC works with several consultants/agencies that can help you through the admissions process and a connection to a local guardian. Please reach out to the Admissions Office for recommendations.

As always, the Admissions Office is here to partner with you throughout your admissions process.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. 267-502-2539
