Enrollment at the charter school is conducted as follows:
- Placement priority is given to students currently enrolled in the charter school
- At the conclusion of this process we will open enrollment to the public by filling any openings on a first come first served basis.
- Once the charter school reaches capacity, students seeking admission will be placed on a waiting list with vacancies filled through a lottery.
- Once students have been selected they will be contacted by the enrollment office to confirm their interest in attending EKA, and to complete the enrollment process.
When completing the enrollment process for your child, you will be required to provide and/or complete the following information:
There are expectations and a commitment from the students/families that attend EKA and every family will be asked to sign a contract that states their acceptance and understanding of these commitments.
