Open Enrollment begins on February 1, 2021 and will close on February 12, 2021. Enrollment documents must be brought to the Freedom Academy office to finalize student enrollment. There will be a Lottery if needed on February 26, 2021. The week of February 22th, 2021 families will be contacted to advise of enrollment status via mail.
Freedom Academy is an open enrollment school of choice. Any student eligible to attend an Arizona public school may enroll. Students will be enrolled during our open enrollment period, culminating with a lottery for grades in which not all enrolled students can be accommodated. After the open enrollment lottery, students will be enrolled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Every attempt will be made to accommodate students seeking admission. However, due to the capacity of the schools physical plant, the school is limited in its student enrollment. When that limit is reached, a waiting list is established based on the students’ enrollment date and time.
So, what is a charter school lottery?
"Typically, a charter school will hold an enrollment period when parents can register their children. If there is enough room for every interested student, the school does not need to hold a lottery. Unlike district magnet schools, charter schools do not have any kind of admissions process, which means students do not need to worry about essays, interviews, or auditions.
If a lottery is necessary, the charter school will begin its random drawing process, either handling the applications manually, or using a computer program."
Freedom Academy’s Board adopted policy is in alignment with the state recommendation that a child must reach the age of five (5) prior to September 1st to be eligible for kindergarten and must be age six (6) by September 1st to be eligible for the first grade. We make no exceptions to this policy.
Early advancement of high achieving students is not advised in most cases. Instead, the goal of Freedom Academy will be to individually enrich the program of a high functioning student instead of advancing them to a higher grade.
