The school will be accepting applications for grades K-8. If the number of applications submitted within the Open Enrollment period of time exceeds the number of seats available for any grade level, a system generated, random lottery will be processed in order to determine who is offered a seat at the school. All applications submitted within the Open Enrollment period will have an equal opportunity for admission, regardless of whether they are submitted on the first day or the last day of Open Enrollment.

Applications for the 2014-15 school year will continue to be accepted through the end of the academic year. Applications submitted for the 2014-15 school year will not be valid, roll over, or be processed in the 2015-16 lottery. A new application must be submitted during the Open Enrollment period in order to be considered for a 2015-16 seat.
