The Process

1. Learn

Prior to enrolling, we invite you to an "information meeting" which will introduce you to our school's philosophies, educational program, give you a chance to meet our school leaders, complete application paperwork, and ask any questions you may have. We also invite you to peruse our website for information about the school, the organization's mission and vision, and important events.

2. Enroll

After attending an information meeting, the next step is to complete an application form. To ensure your child will be part of the lottery, if needed, submit a completed application form during the Open Enrollment period. This can be completed online or in person at any information meeting held by the school during Open Enrollment.

3. Lottery

If more enrollment forms from potential students are submitted than the number of spaces available at each grade level, the school will conduct a random public lottery. We will mail, call and/or e-mail each family to confirm their child's acceptance until all available seats are filled. It is possible to be placed on the waitlist and then called from the wait list later in the year.

4. Paperwork

In order to ensure that your child is fully enrolled, you are required to complete any necessary paperwork by the deadlines set by the school. The packet may include permission for the school to request a copy your child's record, and information on whether your child has an IEP. This information helps the school be prepared to give your child the best education possible starting on day one.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: When does enrollment begin?

A: Scholarship Prep held an Open Enrollment period between January 24, 2017 and February 24, 2017 for the 2016-2017 school year. However, we are continuing to accept enrollment applications.

Q: Can I enroll my child after the Open Enrollment period?

A: Yes. Enrollment continues after the Open Enrollment period, through the start of the school year. However, if a lottery is needed, only those who applied to enroll during the Open Enrollment period are considered for open seats. If open seats remain after the Open Enrollment period, Scholarship Prep will continue to accept applications until all seats are filled.

Q: Is enrollment “first come, first served"?

A: No. Prospective students who apply during the Open Enrollment period will either be enrolled into the school, or if more applications are taken than available seats at any grade level, then all who apply for the impacted grade level will be entered into a lottery.

Q: What is the lottery?

A: After the end of Open Enrollment, if any grade level has received more applications than spaces available, Scholarship Prep will hold a random public lottery for the available spaces at the impacted grade level. The lottery will be publicized in advance and held at a location open to the public so that prospective families may attend.

Q: If all seats are filled, can my child be placed on the waiting list?

A: Yes, all families are welcome to fill out an interest form in order to be placed on the waiting list.

Q: Is Scholarship Prep a free, public school?

A: Yes! We welcome ALL families to enroll their children.

Q: If my prospective student is a foster youth, do they receive an enrollment preference?

A: Yes! Foster youth receive an enrollment preference, meaning that provided space is available, they are able to be enrolled in the school prior to the lottery. Please let those receiving your child’s application know that the prospective student is a foster youth.

Q: Are there any limiting factors for my child regarding enrollment and/or enrollment preference?

A: No, Scholarship Prep accepts all age-eligible students who enroll. This includes pupils with disabilities, academically low-achieving pupils, English learners, neglected or delinquent pupils, homeless pupils, or pupils who are economically disadvantaged, as determined by eligibility for any free or reduced-price meal program, foster youth, or pupils based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

Q: Who can I contact if I have more questions about enrolling my child?

A: Please contact the school’s front office at 442-262-3249 for questions regarding enrolling your child in Scholarship Prep.
