2024 Fall Admissions Information


    The 2024 Fall Admissions Cycle is for 8th graders applying for 9th grade enrollment to the Academies of Loudoun for the 2025-2026 school year. This website is where you will find the most current information about the admissions process and the criteria necessary to apply to the Academy of Engineering & Technology (AET) and/or the Academy of Science (AOS) programs. The Admissions & Outreach Team is here to support you through this process. We will be conducting a number of Fall Admissions Information Sessions throughout Loudoun County (see schedule below) and visiting with all of our LCPS 8th graders at their schools during the Fall Admissions Cycle. Please contact the Office of Admissions & Outreach at any time by email AcademiesAdmissions@lcps.org or by phone 571-252-1992. We look forward to meeting you soon!
