Vista Academies are tuition-free public charter schools. There are no admission requirements, academic or otherwise, to apply for a spot in the school.
We operate under the same rules, regulations, and guidelines as other Texas schools and our schools are tuition-free. It’s an opportunity to receive a rich classical education at virtually no cost. Charter schools are widely regarded as one of the greatest values in education being offered today.
The application period for new students and siblings for the 2013-2014 school year is January 8, 2013 through January 22, 2013 (“Open-Enrollment Period”). All applications must be received no later than 4:00p.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 to be considered during the Open-Enrollment Period.
All students with qualifying residency and disciplinary history (“Eligible Applicants”) will be given equal consideration regardless of the day or time they were submitted.
Applicants who have a sibling currently enrolled in a Vista Academy, Quest Middle School, iSchool High, or Founders Classical Academy should complete an Application for Admission online and make sure to check “Yes,” and list the name and campus of the enrolled sibling. Failure to do so will prevent the student applying from receiving priority status.
At the end of the open-enrollment period, if there are more applications than seats for any grade level, a lottery will be conducted to fill those seats and then to determine position on the waiting list. Consideration will be given for siblings. If there are fewer applications than spaces, then all applicants can be admitted and applications can continue to be taken on a first come, first served basis.
Applications received after the Open-Enrollment Period ends, will be taken on a first come, first served basis. We will place children in grade levels that have remaining open spaces for new students. Once the specific school or grade level is full, we will add your child’s name at the end of the waiting list in the order it was received.
Waiting lists will not carry over from year to year, so any students not admitted will have to reapply the following year.
Admitted students will have the opportunity to re-enroll in January for the next school year. Their siblings will be given priority for any available spaces.
Should you have any questions about the school or the admissions process, please call (877) 737-0010.
