We will continue to collect applications and conduct lotteries on an as needed basis. To ensure your highest possibility of acceptance, please submit your application as soon as possible.
How the Lottery Works
Once you have applied for your student to attend our school, your online application will be held in the General Applicant Pool until such a time as we have a vacancy. Your application will then be included with all other applications in the General Applicant Pool in a random drawing to fill that vacancy. Students are accepted into charter schools by lottery, which is state mandated.
The Kindergarten lottery will be held for all Utah schools with open seats on March 1st. Selected students will be notified by phone and email.
1st – 9th grade lotteries will be held as needed. Selected students will be notified by phone and email.
If you have applied and you don’t hear from us, you can assume nothing has changed with regard to enrollment in your student’s grade. You will need to resubmit your application annually to be included in lotteries each year.
Want To Transfer?
If you currently are enrolled in an American Preparatory Academy, you can submit an application to request a transfer between academies. To request an application, email our Enrollment Coordinator: Lindsey Rees at firstname.lastname@example.org. See the FAQs regarding student transfers below.
