Schedules & Enrollment

Lottery process

  1. During the first quarter of each calendar year, current students are asked to declare their intention to remain at RA for the following year. When this process is complete, any open positions will be filled through the lottery process, which is conducted at the beginning of March.
  2. Interested families should apply online (see link below) during the lottery registration period, from the end of December through the end of February. Enrollment is open to students without discrimination based on race, color, gender, disability, or national origin.
  3. When students are selected by the lottery, their families are contacted by email (please ensure that “renacademy.org” is never sent to “junk mail”). Families are given a specific timeframe to respond with acceptance or refusal. Failure to accept within the timeframe will usually mean that the position will be offered to the next applicant on the list.
  4. Renaissance fills all classrooms in a grade level and any remaining students still on the list are placed on a wait list and the families are contacted if an opening occurs before October 1st.
  5. After October 1st, no students from the lottery or wait list are enrolled.

Interested families are invited explore this website and then, if there are any further questions, our friendly staff are available by phone or in a visit. Official tours will take place in January, after the lottery registration process has begun. Renaissance Academy will make a good faith effort to answer any questions regarding charter schools in general and information about Renaissance Academy.

lottery rules

Those interested in applying may fill out an application online during our lottery registration period (end of December through February).

If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or the school, students shall be selected on a random basis through an enrollment lottery. Students not offered a position will be placed on a wait list and they will be offered a position if/when one opens up for their grade. Siblings of students who have accepted a position will be placed a sibling wait list and they’ll receive “sibling preference”.

If a family is offered placement and declines, they will need to re-enroll and enter the lottery for the following school year if they would like to be admitted after declining. All applicants who are not offered positions at the school will need to re-enter the lottery for enrollment opportunities in subsequent years.

The final date for enrolling students in a current year’s class will be October 1st. The School, at its discretion, may make exceptions for this deadline for students with lottery preference, such as founders, children of full time employees, or siblings of enrolled students.

We make every attempt to contact families to inform them of an open position, but it is the responsibility of the families who remain interested to make the effort to ensure their contact information is current.
