It is time to start considering the 2017-2018 school year! Here is some information to help you understand and navigate the enrollment process:
Kindergarten Parents: Our kindergarten is a half-day program. Morning sessions are from 7:55 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and afternoon sessions are from 12:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. In order to allow families to extend the day into a full school day, we offer a for-fee program called Kindergarten Enrichment. For information about Kindergarten Enrichment, click here.
ATB Students: ATB students are NOT guaranteed a seat at ATA. Due to state laws, we cannot guarantee a seat at ATA to any ATB family. ATB families must complete the same pre-enrollment form and process that is stated above.
Open Enrollment: This is a time to submit 17-18 pre-enrollment form that will be entered into a lottery which will occur on January 18, 2017. You are entered into the lottery by completing and submitting your pre-enrollment form during the open enrollment period.
Dates of Open Enrollment: Open enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year will begin on Monday, November 7, 2016 and close at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 17, 2018.
Lottery:The lottery will be held on January 18, 2017. Pre-enrollment forms submitted during the open enrollment period will be randomly drawn and placed on the appropriate grade level lists for the next school year. Only the first 154 kindergarten students will be guaranteed a seat for the 2017-2018 school year at this time.
Wait Lists: All students, with the exception of the first 154 kindergarten students, will be placed on waiting lists for next year. Seats will be awarded to wait list students as they become available. Your position on the waitlist is first determined by the lottery. Once the open enrollment period has ended, each pre-enrollment form received will be added to the appropriate grade level list in the order it was received.
Sibling Status: Choice Academies does recognize “sibling status.” This means that siblings of currently enrolled students will be moved toward the top of the waiting list. We do try to keep siblings together as space allows.
Current ATA Students: If your student is currently enrolled in Adams Traditional Academy, you do not need to complete a pre-enrollment form for the next school year. All current students will automatically be given a seat for the next year until we receive notice of withdrawal or a change of school.
Pre-enrollment forms will be available on the website and in the main office beginning November 7th. Open enrollment will end January 17, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. You must submit your pre-enrollment form before this time to be eligible for the lottery. The lottery will take place on January 18, 2017.
Teacher Request Forms
Each year ATA conducts Teacher Request Day. This is an opportunity for parents to request a specific teacher for their student’s upcoming school year. The date for the 2017-2018 teacher request will be held in the spring of 2017. The date is to be determined.
