Students can apply using one of three methods:
- Complete an online Application, or
- Call 1-877-737-0010, or
- Complete a paper Application at the campus.
A student applying for admission for the 2013-2014 school year must complete a Student Application for Admission (“Application”). 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.
After the Open-Enrollment Period ends, applications 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 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.
In accordance with the Texas Education Code and the school’s charter; it is the policy of the school to prohibit discrimination in student admission on the basis of sex; national origin; ethnicity; religion; disability; academic, artistic, or athletic ability; or the district the student would otherwise attend.
Provisional Admission: All students with qualifying residency and disciplinary history (“Eligible Applicants”) will be provisionally admitted pending the close of the open‐enrollment period and the determination of the need for a lottery.
Lottery: If the number of Eligible Applicants does not exceed the number of vacancies, then all Eligible Applicants who have timely applied during the open‐enrollment period will be offered admission. If there are more Eligible Applicants than available spaces in a class/grade/school, then a lottery will be necessary. In the case of a lottery, you will be notified via primary contact’s e-mail address of the date, time, and location. A name (or number assigned to a name) will be drawn for each vacancy that exists, and each Eligible Applicant whose name (or number) is drawn will be offered admission. The remaining names will then be drawn and placed on a waiting list in the order in which they were drawn.
Notification of admission will be made by telephone or e-mail. Failure of a parent/guardian to respond within 48 hours of the date of the telephone call or e‐mail, will forfeit his or her position in the lottery. Parents/Guardians should call the school immediately upon receipt of the notice in order to confirm their student’s position in the lottery.
Exceptions:Federal guidelines permit the school to exempt from the lottery process students who are already admitted under the charter, siblings of students already admitted under the charter, and children of the charter’s founders, teachers, and staff.
Waiting List: If a vacancy arises before or during the 2013-2014 school year, the Eligible Applicant on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list.
Enrollment: Students offered admission to the school—as well as the first ten Eligible Applicants on the waiting list—will be required to complete the school’s Student Enrollment Packet (“Enrollment Packet”). Students who fail to complete the Enrollment Packet (along with all required documentation) within three weeks of receiving the Enrollment Packet will be deemed to have withdrawn from the school (or withdrawn their Application) to make room for other eligible applicants.
Re-Apply: Students still on the waiting list on December 1, 2013, who wish to apply for admission for the 2014-2015 school year, will need to re-apply December 2, 2013, through January 17, 2014 (“2014-2015 Open-Enrollment Period”).
