Application Process & Random Selection - Ivywood

Application Process & Random Selection

Application Process

  • The application period shall be a minimum of two weeks in duration, with evening and/or weekend times available.
  • The academy shall accept applications all year. If openings occur during the academic year, students shall be enrolled. If openings do not exist, applicants shall be placed on the official waiting list. The waiting list shall cease to exist at the beginning of the next application period.
  • In the event there are openings in the class for which students have applied, students shall be admitted according to the official waiting list. The position on the waiting list shall be determined by the first-come, first-served basis.
  • The academy, being an equal opportunity educational institution, shall be committed to good-faith affirmative action efforts to seek out, create and serve a diverse student body.

Random Selection

A random selection drawing could be required if the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces after the two-week application period if we receive more applicants than opening during the two week open enrollment period in March. If we do not receive more applicants than we have spaces, we accept students on a first-come, serve-basis and then a wait-list will be created as needed.

The academy shall notify applicants not chosen in the random selection drawing that they were not selected and that their name has been placed on the academy’s official waiting list for openings that may occur during the academic year. Students shall appear on the official waiting list in the order they were selected in the random selection drawing.

Note, Ivywood Classical Academy did not require a lottery for the 2020/21 school year.
