About Enrollment

Join the Lottery Waitlist for 2018-2019!

American Academy enrolls all new students (including our KindiePrep students) via random lottery because we want every child to have an opportunity to attend our school. The American Academy enrollment lottery will be run on November 27--this date is currently being reviewed by the Board of Directors and may change (or the first school day thereafter should the enrollment date ever fall on a weekend). All students entered in the American Academy lottery waitlist by 11:59 pm on November 26 are included in the lottery on November 27. For more information on our lottery procedure, please review the American Academy Enrollment Policy.
To join the American Academy lottery waitlist for any future school year, just create an online lottery waitlist account using our online enrollment system. Once you have created your account, you may log back in at any time to review or change your waitlist account information, or to check on your waitlist status.


How the Enrollment Lottery Works

Interested parents must join the American Academy lottery waitlist by 11:59 pm on November 26 in order to be included in the 2019-2020 school year enrollment lottery, 
Parents who have already joined our enrollment lottery waitlist are encouraged to log in and confirm information in the lottery waitlist system before November 26. You may request to have your PIN number sent to you if you have forgotten it.
If your family was offered a spot at any time and you did not respond or declined the offer, your family was removed from the waitlist. It is a family's responsibility to resubmit their information to AA if you are still interested in enrollment.


Within just a few hours after the waitlist lottery is run on November 27, families will be able to see real-time updates on their student lottery status. The waitlist is dynamic, meaning family waitlist positions will change as other families accept or decline spots.


The registrar's office will begin making phone and email offers (using the phone number and email address provided to us in the waitlist lottery system), on November 28. Upon receipt of an email and phone call (or voicemail message) offer of enrollment, parents have 24 hours (time-stamped) to accept or decline that offer. Upon accepting an offer of enrollment, parents will have one week to turn in all completed enrollment paperwork. IMPORTANT: Incomplete enrollment paperwork packets will not be accepted.
