Admission to WSU Charter Academy

WSU Charter Academy offers enrollment for kindergarten students in two half-day sessions (22 students being in the morning session and 22 students being in the afternoon session) for an enrollment cap of 44 students.  We comply with all federal and state laws relative to admission policies, which include an open admission, and will not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, gender, handicap, or any other specification protected by law.

All parents wishing to enroll their student in WSU Charter Academy must submit a Lottery Application form which includes the required information for each prospective student.  Siblings may be listed on one form.  Submission of that application does not guarantee admission to, or constitute enrollment in WSU Charter Academy.

An Open Enrollment period from January 1 through February 28, is established each year beginning the enrollment for the upcoming school year. Should the number of applicants exceed the space available at the school, a lottery will be held the first part of March to select students.

The date of the Lottery will be posted on this website; Lottery Applications are accepted online.  No application for the next school year will be accepted before the Open Enrollment period begins for that school year. 

Admission: Once a child has been accepted through the lottery, parents will be notified and given the opportunity to accept or decline their child’s admission and complete the necessary paperwork for registration. 

Notification and Response Deadlines:  Parents will be notified via e-mail and/or phone.  It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that the school has their current contact information and to respond by April 1 to an offer of admission.  WSU Charter Academy will attempt to contact parents regarding their child’s admission a minimum of two times.  If the parent cannot be contacted or is non-responsive within a designated time period, the available space will be offered to another student through subsequent lotteries.

Final Registration: Parents who accept admission are provided with required registration materials to complete student registration as well as a firm deadline for submission of all registration materials. If the designated registration deadline is not met, the available space may be offered to another student through subsequent lotteries.

Parents may apply to as many schools as they wish for their children, however children may only be registered in one school at a time.  If your child is accepted at more than one educational institution, i.e. charter school, private school or traditional public school, you must choose only one school in which to register him or her.  WSU Charter Academy works in cooperation with district and charter schools to ensure that students are not dually enrolled.

You are not prohibited from being registered in one school and maintaining wait-list status in another.  It is possible for a position to open during the school year.  Parents should consider in advance if they are willing to move their child mid-year or not.
