New Students

Applications must be submitted to be considered for enrollment. At any grade level, if the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings, enrollment is determined by a lottery and waitlist numbers. The Open Enrollment period  is NOT first-come, first-served. Only applications completed during the Open Enrollment period are included in the lottery pool. Applications submitted after the Open Enrollment period has ended will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, behind applications received during the Open Enrollment period.

If a student is offered a seat, the parents are asked to complete the full enrollment packet within the specified amount of time to secure the seat. If the parents does not respond in the time allotted, the seat may be offered to the next student in line on the wait list.

Returning Students

Students who are enrolled at Aristotle Preparatory Academy do not have to re-enroll each year. Once you are accepted into APA, your seat is secure year after year. As a courtesy and for planning purposes, the school does ask parents each year if they plan to return for the upcoming school year. It is helpful if we have this informaiton as we can offer available seats to those still searching.
