APPLICATION PROCESS
 

The application process is open year-round to all students enrolling in Kindergarten through 6th grade and begins by clicking the red Online Application button above.  To ensure equality and to comply with state law in our enrollment, the following processes will be followed. 

 

Open enrollment each school year begins February 1 and is open through April 1.  Applications received during this time will be part of the lottery, if required, once open-enrollment closes. If required, the lottery will be held the first Monday after April 1.  Applications received on or after April 2 are accepted on a first-come first-served basis. As long as there are available seats, eligible students will be accepted.  Any application received after the Open-Enrollment period requesting enrollment in a campus and/or grade-level that is full will be added to the wait list in the order it was received.

 

Lottery:

All applications received during Open-Enrollment from February 1 through April 1 will be eligible for the lottery.  If the number of students interested in a campus and/or grade-level exceeds the number of seats available for that campus and/or grade, names will be drawn at random through a lottery process to determine acceptance.  Families will be notified of their admission status soon afterwards.  Once all seats have been filled through the lottery, the remaining applications eligible for the lottery will be drawn to determine their order on the wait list.

 

If the number of applications received for any campus and/or grade-level is lower than the available seats on that campus and/or grade-level, all eligible students with a completed application are automatically accepted.  Because Arrow Academy is a Texas Open-Enrollment Charter School, the State of Texas limits the number of students we may enroll. 

 

During open enrollment, siblings of currently enrolled students and the children of currently employed teachers will have priority in the lottery.  After the open-enrollment period there is no prioritization given.

 

Wait List Procedures:

If a wait list is required, all applications received after April 1 will be added to the wait-list in the order they are received.  All applications received on or before April 1 during open enrollment that were not drawn for an available seat will be at the top of the wait list in the order in which their name was drawn.  If and when a seat becomes available, the first student on the waiting list requesting that campus and grade level will be notified of the availability and offered the seat. 

 

Enrollment Forms:

Once a family has accepted the offer of enrollment in our online enrollment portal, they will be given access to our online forms and be able to complete and submit them online through the same portal.

 

Re-enrollment Process:

The re-enrollment period for our currently attending students for next year begins in February.  Families will be notified via notes home, emails, and other communication of these dates each year.  To ensure the student has a seat for next year, before the deadline given, the parent will need to log-in to the online-enrollment portal via the instructions and link received via email or text.  Once the deadline passes, the student may have to re-enroll and be placed on the waiting list if there are no seats available. 

 

Applications for siblings of current students for next year will be accepted during the open-enrollment period during which available seats are filled with continuing students first, and siblings second.  Sibling applications received after the open-enrollment period, may be added to the wait list if there are no seats available.

 

Geographic Area:

All students must live within one of our approved geographic areas as determined by the school district in which you live. Click here for the approved geographic areas. Students are encouraged to apply to the learning center closest to their home.
