Student Application Process

STEP 1: Junior/Senior High (7-12) Application

The application is a brief survey for students and parents to complete together. Some questions require input from both perspectives.  This survey is for informational purposes only and will not be scored. These questions are merely to help determine whether or not your child is a good candidate for hands on learning in this specialized program.

STEP 2: District Registration

If your student currently attends a Jenison Public School building (Jenison High School, Jenison Junior High, Bauerwood, Bursley, El Puente, Pinewood, Rosewood, or Sandy Hill), steps 2 & 3 are not required.  Once the JIA application is completed, you will be contacted by the JIA Registrar outlining next steps for enrollment.

For students who did not attend Jenison Public Schools, including Jenison International Academy, for the 2019-2020 school year, a new registration is required.  Please follow the instructions below.

Using the link provided, any parent or guardian may complete an enrollment registration electronically.

Electronic Registration (2020-2021 School Year)

All new Jenison Public School enrollments must complete this registration. Please either upload the following documents as part of the online registration or bring them to the JIA offices. 

  • Proof of Residency (photocopy of a utility bill, house buy/rental agreement
  • Photocopy of your child’s original birth certificate
  • Up-to-date Immunization Record
  • Additional documents if applicable (court orders, custody documents, etc.)

STEP 3: Records Request

Once all the above steps are complete, the JIA registrar will request any academic records, behavior/discipline records, testing results, and attendance records from your student’s current school.  Typically, for junior high and high school students, we wait until the end of the semester/school year to request these records as they give us an accurate and clear indication of high school credits earned and whether your student will be successful in an online learning environment. Students who have been homeschooled will need to provide a signed Homeschool Transcript.

STEP 4: Principal Meeting

The last step before acceptance involves a meeting for both you and your student with the school principal. If accepted, the principal will create a tentative class schedule for the school year.
