The Application Process

At Eastern Academy we know that going to College is a big decision that can be very intimidating and exciting. That is why we’ve worked hard to make the enrollment process as straightforward and stress-free as possible!

We have a simple 14 step Admissions Process that our Admissions Team will guide you though.
