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.

Open Enrollment and Lottery

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment for the upcoming school year begins on October 1 at 8:00 a.m. school’s local time and ends at 5:00 p.m. on November 30. 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.
 

Lottery

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. Lotteries take place in December. Lottery information will be posted to the school calendar.

Acceptance

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