Frequently Asked Questions

Is Brookshire International Academy listed on the FAFSA(financial Aid) Application and can students take the SAT?

Yes. Our NMSQT/FAFSA number is 054443 for the SAT. When filing for financial aid through FAFSA, you only need to fill our your application at https://fafsa.ed.gov and when entering the High School information, you would select that you graduated from Brookshire International Academy in San Diego, California. If the receiving institution then refuses to admit you, their policies are not in line with state or federal requirements, however, they do hold the right to refuse admittance, and Brookshire cannot influence that decision.

Is Brooksire International Academy accredited?

Yes. Our accreditation is current with NALSAS as well as the San Diego Better Business Bureau. Even though as a private high school, we are excluded from the required accreditation as is seen in these Department of Education links (California,Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arizona), we believe it is in the best interest of our students and alumni to always have the oversight of our accrediting bodies. Brookshire International Academy is a Candidate for Accreditation with NCA CASI, NWAC, and SACS CASI.
