Simpson County Academy Student Admission Policy
Simpson County Academy is an accredited, coeducational, college preparatory school for grades K3-12. Enrollment is open to students who meet entrance requirements and who progress satisfactorily in both academics and conduct.

2. Students presently enrolled at SCA who are in good standing academically and behaviorally and current on fees and tuition will be allowed to preregister for the following school year before enrollment is opened to other students.
3. Students will be enrolled on a probationary nine-week period. Academic progress and conduct during this period will determine continued enrollment.
