Waiting List

  • The waiting list governs the order in which openings at each school are filled.
  • Families on the waiting list are notified by [phone] if a space becomes available. A parent/guardian is directed to contact the school within three (3) business days to accept the available opening or else forfeit the spot.
  • If applications are turned in after the lottery and all seats have been filled, the applicant will be placed on the waiting list.
  • The waiting list is cleared at the end of each academic year and does not carry over to the following year.


  • A school staff member will contact families by phone to offer admission and confirm their intent to enroll. A parent/guardian has three (3) business days from when they are contacted to confirm enrollment or the student loses the place and moves to the end of the waiting list.
  • After the admissions offer is accepted, the school will schedule an enrollment appointment with the parent/guardian to complete and return the enrollment packet.
