The Admissions Process

During any given school year, Padua is home to Pandas representing 4 states and numerous countries. The best way to learn more about your daughter's future at Padua, we highly recommend that 8th graders schedule a Shadow Visit Day and that families attend our annual Open House, taking place this year on September 26. 

Admission to Padua Academy is based on a metric that includes, but is not limited to, a student's performance on the High School Placement Test and her elementary school record.
