Transportation is provided to the Academy from the two high schools in the district at no charge to the student.  Classes meet daily for one semester.

  • General Requirements and Process

    SAA is an audition-based school. Most courses require an audition to attend. Please review the second page of the audition guide for course audition information. 
    Following the audition, a letter will be sent to the auditioning student at their home school with acceptance information.
    All students must have maintained a C average or better in all courses the previous school year to be accepted. If a student was in ISS 3 or more times, Suspended, or Expelled, the student is not eligible to attend Southwood Academy.
