HOW TO BECOME A CADET
begin your journey today
STEP # 1
ONLINE ZOOM ORIENTATION
Attending an orientation is the first step in applying for a scholarship. Find out everything you need to know about what Sunburst has to offer and what the application process entails. Students must be in attendance during the online orientation in order to move forward in the process. Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to watch the orientation prior to the student orientation to get more information about the academy.
Once the student has completed the orientation and is ready to apply for a scholarship, you may complete the Phase 1 online application. Remember, the student must be the one that decides to apply for a scholarship.
Once a student has completed the online Phase 1 Application, an admissions staff member will reach out and schedule a one on one Zoom interview with a counselor. Applicants will receive an email with the Zoom link for the interview. If you are having issues, you may log in to the zoom interview by clicking your assigned counselor below.
Upon successful completion of the interview, students will be required to submit the remaining application documents. A student's application cannot be considered for acceptance until a complete application has been submitted.
ATTEND ROLL CALL
Roll Calls are designed to evaluate how a student performs under direct instruction in a quasi-military style environment. Basic military movements will be taught in conjunction with various physical fitness activities. We are evaluating the students motivation, attitude, and desire to attend Sunburst. You must be invited to register for Roll Calls.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. In the beginning of November, Sunburst will invite 220 applicants to attend a Final Roll Call. Scholarships will be awarded at that time and instructions for enrollment will be issued. If you do not have a completed application or have attended Roll Call, you will not be considered for a scholarship.
