    APPLICATION
  • The Random Lottery

    All eligible applications submitted are automatically entered into our Lottery – no further step is needed. The Success Academy lottery will be conducted in early April. Attendance is not mandatory, as results will not be distributed that day.

    The lottery is completely random with select preferences built-in.

    Lottery preferences are provided for:

    • Siblings of current or accepted Success Academy students
    • Children of Success Academy employees
    • Applicants who reside within the Community School District (CSD) of an applied school English Language Learners*

    *English Language Learners will receive a weighted preference in the lottery

    Notification
    Applicants who apply by April 1st will receive notification of their lottery results by mail in mid-April. Any applications submitted after April 1st will be processed via waitlist pull. Waitlist pull acceptances will be relayed to families by telephone and/or email. All results will be accessible online in late April. There are two possible outcomes from the lottery – acceptance or placement on the waitlist.

    Acceptance & Enrollment
    If you are granted a seat based on your random lottery number, you will receive information about how to enroll your child. You will need to confirm that your child will be joining us in the Fall, as well as attend a few events to help prepare your child for the first day of school.

    Waitlist
    If your child is not accepted during the initial lottery (as determined by his or her random lottery number), he or she will be placed on our waitlist. We will provide as much information as possible on the likelihood of your child receiving a seat. Many children are accepted off the waitlist each year. We update the waitlist regularly and will notify you if your child becomes accepted. The application is closed in early September.
