You will receive an email acknowledgement that your initial application is received and complete.  Please make checks payable to Jacobson Sinai Academy. Applications for new students will be processed in the order they were received. Applications for siblings of current students will be given preference. When a particular age group/grade reaches its capacity, a wait-pool will be created.
