Preferential enrollment is given to children of full-time employees, followed by siblings of current students, then siblings of graduated students, followed by current students articulating from one of the charter schools listed in our articulation agreement approved by USBE, and finally to children or grandchildren of Board of Trustees members.
Each grade is treated as a separate entity regarding the lottery. When one grade level has exceeded the available seats, a random lottery will be held at the end of the current month. Each grade has its own waiting list for available seats after the lottery has taken place. The number of students admitted each new year is based on returning students’ acceptance. Typically, 175 new students are admitted each year, 150 for our new Sophomore class and 25 for our current Junior and Senior classes.
Any applicant who is not selected in the random lottery (if applicable) will be placed on a waiting list in the order that their lottery number was drawn after the available positions are filled.
Should an opening occur before the school year begins, applicants on the waiting list will be contacted in the order that their lottery number was drawn and will be offered admission.
