Enrollment Process

is based on the completion of 9th grade, including acquiring all credits required for graduation, and application
procedures at the participating sending school. Students applying are evaluated at Admiral Peary
by the Guidance Department on interests, abilities, aptitudes, and learning styles prior to entering. As with
any course, a strong academic background is advantageous. Test results along with student interests are
used to determine appropriate program placement. For a student to obtain the most of his/her vocational
career, it is stressed that they apply in their freshman year. All other grade levels will be considered through
the Guidance Departments.
Placement in Admiral Peary programs is based on quotas. Each participating school receives a quota of
the openings available for the following school year. This quota is based on the numerical enrollment of
each of the schools, but is interchangeable between schools contingent upon the number of applicants for
each program from each school. Enrollment at Admiral Peary AVTS is limited to 25 students per session in
each program.

they receive the required subjects that are necessary for graduation as specified by the Pennsylvania Department
of Education.
