Enrollment and Lottery Procedures
The open enrollment period for all ISANA Academy schools is in the Spring of each year and we encourage you to apply. Exact dates for each school’s open enrollment period for the upcoming year will be posted here in December. Parent(s)/guardian(s) are also encouraged to attend an orientation meeting with their child(ren) to understand the school’s vision and policies, including the Family Agreement. A parent’s decision not to attend an orientation meeting or sign the Family Agreement does not impact enrollment.
All qualifying applicants will be accepted provided that the number of enrollment forms received at the time of the deadline does not exceed the school’s enrollment capacity. If the number of students who wish to attend the school exceeds the school’s capacity, enrollment will be determined by a public random drawing (public lottery). Parents who choose to send their children to an ISANA Academy school will be asked to complete a form to participate in the lottery. Only lottery forms received before the open enrollment period ends will be included in the public random drawing. Each school’s lottery, if necessary, for the 2018-19 school year will be held at the school site, and when we have the date for the lotteries we will post that here.
