How to Apply

Submitting an application is the first step.

To be eligible for the random admissions lottery held annually in March, your online application must be completed and submitted by the application deadline.

For 2024-25, applications opened December 12, 2023.

The deadline to submit an application was February 23, 2024.

Our Admissions Lottery was held Wednesday March 7, 2024. 

If our staff needs more information about your application, they will contact you using the information listed.
Please make sure your application has the correct phone number and email address.


NOTE: Submitting an application does not enroll your child at FA. Applying is only the first step.

New students, students currently on the FA Wait List AND siblings of current students must complete and submit the online Application by 9 p.m. Feb. 23, 2024. Applications are available in both EN and ES.

Begin the application by following the instructions to create or login to a Schoolmint account. This account is how you will learn results of the admissions lottery and where your child ranks on the Wait List.

Please provide all the information requested. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL BE DISCARDED.

Submit ONE application per child. Submitting more applications DOES NOT increase the chances of enrollment. DUPLICATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE DISCARDED.

Applications for 2024-25 will be selected in a random admissions lottery process on March 7, 2024.

Before the admissions lottery, FA will confirm what seats are available in each grade for the upcoming school year.

FA typically has about 80 open seats for new kindergarten students each year. Other applicants usually are placed on a Wait List until a space becomes available.

If space is available in your requested grade, FA will provide information about watching the computerized, random admissions lottery event.

Our 2024-25 admissions event, featuring the automated randomized lottery, will be held live on the FA youtube channel at 3 p.m. THURS March 7, 2024.

Viewing the lottery is not mandatory and has no effect on your child’s application.

Admissions lottery results will be available on Enroll after 4 pm March 9, 2023.

If no space is available in your requested grade, FA will place your child on a WAIT LIST.

You will NOT hear from FA but you can learn your child’s position on the Wait List any time after March 16, 2024 by logging into your SchoolMint account.

Any applications received throughout the year after the admissions lottery deadline are placed on the Wait List, behind those who applied by the deadline in the order received.

If FA is able to admit your child for the 2024-25 school year, our staff will contact you. Please be sure your contact information is accurate on your application.

You will ONLY be notified if FA has space to accept your child for the 2024-25 school year.

If your child was selected in the admissions lottery, FA will provide an enrollment packet and discuss how to complete the process.

NOTE: Submitting an application DOES NOT ENROLL your child at FA.

You must provide required information BY THE DEADLINES LISTED IN THE ENROLLMENT PACKET for your child to be enrolled at FA for the 2024-25 school year.

Selection in the lottery does not automatically guarantee enrollment as a Foundation Academies scholar.

To officially enroll, families MUST submit the completed enrollment packet by the deadline listed on the enrollment letter, before classes begin in August 2024.

Foundation Academies staff will assist families with the process and documents required to finalize enrollment.

NOTE: If your information is not submitted on time, your child’s space may be given to another applicant on the Wait List.
