Admission criteria will not consider intellectual or athletic ability, aptitude, disability, race, creed, national origin, religion or ancestry. Open enrollment for the Academy will take place in the month of February.
If the number of applications exceeds the number of seats available in a grade, the school will accept students by a random selection process. The school will grant enrollment preference to returning students, to siblings of students already enrolled in the school, and to students residing in the district. The school will maintain a waiting list of the remaining applicants. The school will notify applicant families by the end of April whether their children have been accepted. A neutral party will conduct the lottery on behalf of the school.
After available spaces are filled, waiting lists will be maintained for each grade. When a space becomes available in a grade, the parent of the first student on the waiting list will be contacted and given one week in which they can accept the position. If the space is declined, the next person on the list will be contacted.
