Applying to Capstone Academy

Whether you're ready to apply or if you're thinking about applying, we want you to know what to expect. Below are some frequently asked questions about our application process, Open Enrollment and lottery procedures, and enrollment requirements. If you have questions, email and we'll get back to you shortly.

Open Enrollment and Lottery

Open Enrollment

All applications received during Open Enrollment are considered equal and eligible for being randomly drawn to fill available seats. If more applications are received than there are seats available, a random selection lottery will take place to determine which applicants are offered an available seat and determine the order of the waiting list. If fewer applications have been received than there are seats available, all students will be accepted. Check back for more information on Capstone's Open Enrollment period.


Lottery is a random selection process to fill available seats for all grade levels. A lottery is only held if the number of applications received during Open Enrollment is greater than the number of seats available in any grade level. Lottery information will be posted to the homepage of the school's website and the school's calendar.

Next Steps


We will contact you by mail and email if there is an available seat for your child. Please keep your contact information up to date, and let the school know if any contact information changes. If we cannot get a hold of you, your child’s seat may be forfeited.

Waiting List

If your child is on the waiting list, don’t be discouraged! Often, seats become available throughout the summer. We will continue to send you school information if your child is on the waiting list.
