If there's a student on the lot that has a grade of C or higher, any child or older Sim can call the Headmaster using the "Invite Headmaster" interaction on the [[phone]]. The headmaster then will arrive at 5 p.m. and a 6 hour scenario will start. You have to do three tasks to get accepted into private school.
+
To gain entry into private school, there must be a child or teen Sim with a school grade of C or higher in the household. Once this has been achieved, players can click the "Invite Headmaster" interaction on a [[telephone]] or cell phone. Once called, the Headmaster will arrive at 5pm and, once he is greeted, a 6-hour scenario will begin.
   
To perform any of the tasks, click the Headmaster and select an interaction under the "Entertain" category.
+
Players will have the chance to impress the Headmaster in three key areas: a tour of the house, providing him with dinner, and schmoozing with him. To initiate the tour or dinner, click on the Headmaster and select Entertain... from the pie menu. To schmooze, select Schmooze... from the Headmaster's pie menu. Impressing him in those three areas will earn points which add up to an overall score. 90 points (out of a possible 135) is required to be accepted into private school.
   
===Dinner===
+
As soon as the total score breaks the 90-point requirement, the Headmaster will leave, even if there's time remaining on the clock, and all eligible children and teens in the household will be allowed into private school. Sims who age up from the toddler to the child life stage after the Headmaster's visit or child Sims added to the household after the visit are ''not'' yet covered, and another visit will need to be scheduled once the toddler ages up (the household will need to do all preparations in order to meet the 90-point requirement again). The next weekday, the accepted Sim(s) will change into a uniform and then board the school bus as normal. If the time limit expires and the score has not been met, players can try again the next day.

[[ru:Городская академия]]
Have your Sim serve a meal. The higher the cooker's [[Cooking]] skill, the more points the scenario will get. Burned food will not earn a good score.
 
 
===Tour of the House===
 
 
This task can earn 40 to 50 points. Show every room in the house; rooms with higher [[Environment]] scores are worth more points.
 
 
===Schmoozing===
 
 
This last element involves building relationship with the household members. The more [[Relationships|Daily Relationship]] build, the better the Schmooze score. Talking to the Headmaster will also build this score, and talking around the dinner table will contribute to it.
 
 
===Bonus Scoring===
 
 
Getting the Headmaster to do any of the things once earn an extra 10 points:
 
*Get him into the [[hot tub]] (though it can be hard to get him out).
 
*Get him to drink coffee.
 
*Have a drink from the bar.
 
 
==Tips==
 
Never, ever make chef salad for the headmaster. No matter who he is (varies for each game), the headmaster absolutely hates chef salad. He prefers pork chops, lobster and salmon. Also it's a good idea to have one parent at home, giving the tour, while the other parent cooks the food. Try to keep the kid out of the way.
 
 
When your Sim is pregnant if you want the child to get in to private school make one of the parents start studying cooking and get the other to get a nice job for a good tour
 
 
If you're using the boolprop cheat, you can make your Sim best friends with the principal, which fills the Schmooze requirement. If you then give him a decent tour, you're in, without the fuss and muss of cooking.
 
 
Check to make sure that all doors are unlocked when the headmaster visits. If he finds himself locked out, he will reject the kid outright.
 
 
The Headmaster scenario can be glitchy, so call close to 4 pm, save just before calling, and don't save while the scenario is in progress. That way, if it glitches, you should be able to exit without saving, and try again.
 
 
If you use the coffeecuphack from More Awesome Than You! , it may be a good idea to remove or disable it before calling the Headmaster, unless you don't plan to serve him coffee or espresso. Occasionally, a "jump bug" may occur when a Sim washes a coffee cup in a sink. While this is only a mild annoyance if it happens to a household member, if it happens to the Headmaster he will vanish.

Private School

SimCity Academy, introduced in The Sims 2, is a private school that children and teenagers can attend if they have a minimum grade of C. In general, it is simply referred to as a private school. Families are not charged for sending children and teens to private school, although preparing expensive meals and purchasing expensive furnishings are recommended to ensure a successful enrollment into private school.

Players have to have a Sim invite the Headmaster over for dinner, then schmooze, feed, and impress him in order to have their children or teens be accepted into private school. Being accepted into, or rejected from, private school gives a special memory to both the parents and children/teens. Getting a child into private school, or getting into private school as a teen, is a high-value want that Knowledge and Fortune Sims are likely to roll, though it is not unique to them.

Kids and teens in private school will change into a uniform before getting on the school bus.

Getting into private schoolEdit

Greeting the Headmaster

Greeting the Headmaster


To gain entry into private school, there must be a child or teen Sim with a school grade of C or higher in the household. Once this has been achieved, players can click the "Invite Headmaster" interaction on a telephone or cell phone. Once called, the Headmaster will arrive at 5pm and, once he is greeted, a 6-hour scenario will begin.

Players will have the chance to impress the Headmaster in three key areas: a tour of the house, providing him with dinner, and schmoozing with him. To initiate the tour or dinner, click on the Headmaster and select Entertain... from the pie menu. To schmooze, select Schmooze... from the Headmaster's pie menu. Impressing him in those three areas will earn points which add up to an overall score. 90 points (out of a possible 135) is required to be accepted into private school.

As soon as the total score breaks the 90-point requirement, the Headmaster will leave, even if there's time remaining on the clock, and all eligible children and teens in the household will be allowed into private school. Sims who age up from the toddler to the child life stage after the Headmaster's visit or child Sims added to the household after the visit are not yet covered, and another visit will need to be scheduled once the toddler ages up (the household will need to do all preparations in order to meet the 90-point requirement again). The next weekday, the accepted Sim(s) will change into a uniform and then board the school bus as normal. If the time limit expires and the score has not been met, players can try again the next day.
