Good to Know

Waitlist Notice

At this point in the year, new applicants to NSA may be accepted. However, due to limited capacity and competitive demand, we cannot reserve seats in our freshman class. The remaining seats will be given to confirmed applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.

In order to confirm, you must submit the acceptance packet form (links below) and pay the $500 deposit. You will receive an email within 1-2 business days with a link to pay this.

Confirmed students who have paid the deposit will either:

·     Be enrolled in the freshman class if there is room.

·     Be placed on our waitlist.

If you are placed on the waitlist and no seat becomes available in our freshman class, your $500 deposit will be refunded.
