Q. Is there a deadline for application submissions?

The National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys has a rolling admission process, which means that applications are accepted, and students whose application files are completed are considered for admission throughout the academic year. Prospective parents are advised to begin the application process for the following school year as soon as possible beginning with the submission of our online inquiry form starting in October of each year.

Q. Does NEIGB accept students with special needs?

National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys admits students who meet grade level expectations. Admission for students needing limited support will be determined on a case by case basis, and is dependent upon whether a particular student’s needs match the level of support available. NEIGB does not offer the full continuum of special education programs and has limited resources to support students who, due to severe disabilities (i.e. learning, physical, and/or behavioral), require major staffing, curricular, or assessment modifications.

Parents are required to submit their application, pay the application fee, and provide complete documentation for the Admission Committee to review, in order to determine appropriateness of admission based on the student’s ability to be successful in a classroom setting.

Q. Are there test required during the application process?

Admission to National Evangelical Institute for Girls and Boys is based upon previous school records, the candidate’s completed application, NEIGB’s confidential cycle recommendations, an admissions exam or assessment, depending on grade level.

Depending on the age and grade level of your child, the assessment will vary from readiness skills, to a math, reading, and writing assessment. An assessment to determine your child’s level of English may also be given. The admission assessment and file review will be the final determination of your student’s academic level and readiness for our program, leading to an acceptance decision from the school.
