What is Open Enrollment?

Arizona state law allows students to apply for admission to any state public school, based on available classroom space. Open Enrollment applications are approved on a year-by-year basis with no guarantee of continued enrollment.

When is Open Enrollment?

Open Enrollment begins in January of each school year. Contact us for a packet!

Do you have a lottery system?

Yes, we have a lottery system for new enrollments. Students will be granted Open Enrollment Approval sufficient to fill the school’s capacity. Priority consideration will be given to returning students and their siblings.

What are the timelines?

The initial Open Enrollment period begins in January during the school year prior to the year Open Enrollment is being requested for. A deadline is set each year for Open Enrollment applications to be considered for the following school year. Calibre Academy will notify families of their application status before the new school year begins and families may be subject to a screening interview prior to acceptance. If the family chooses to accept the Open Enrollment slot, the student must complete a transfer or registration packet no later than 10 days after notification of status or forfeit the approved Open Enrollment. Applications received after the designated Open Enrollment deadline will be put on a waiting list. If the class has available capacity, the application may be approved using the priority determinations. Students may be granted Open Enrollment approval sufficient to fill the school or class capacity.
How will I be notified?

Parents will receive notification of their application status before the new school year begins. Applications may be approved, rejected, or placed on a waiting list. Notification will be sent via mail and/or email.

What if I miss the deadline for the application?

If the designated Open Enrollment deadline is missed, an Open Enrollment application may still be submitted for consideration prior to the beginning of the new school year. Late applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Once available capacity is determined, applications will be considered based on priority status and parents/guardians will be notified. Once the campus or class meets or exceeds its capacity, either through Open Enrollment or population growth, the school or class will be closed to further Open Enrollment for the remainder of the school year.
