What is a lottery?

Since the number of applicants exceeds the established ceiling, students are selected by lottery. When a student is chosen, siblings of the applicant (within the same household) are also invited for admission, provided there are openings. Students currently admitted are given preference for re-enrollment. Siblings of admitted students are given preference relative to other applicants.

Hawthorn Academy will not discriminate in its admission policies or practices on the same basis as other public schools may not discriminate in their admission policies and practices.

When will I be notified of an open position?

During the very first open enrollment of the new school year, typically held in January, any Open Enrollment is held. All students who have applied for the school are notified if they have been accepted or are on the waiting list within 2 days of the Open Enrollment closing. Positions are filled throughout the school year as they become available. As soon as a position becomes available for your student, you will be notified either by e-mail, phone, or both.

It is possible for a position to open during the school year. Parents should consider in advance if they are willing to move their child mid-year or not.

Is there anything I can do to improve my child's chance of getting in?

By law, the only way to receive preferential treatment during enrollment is under the following circumstances: (1) a sibling is already attending the school or (2) a parent is a founding board member of the school. Extra volunteer hours, special favors, or donations are not accepted in exchange for special preference.

When the school is at capacity, can I be placed on a waiting list?

Per federal law, the school is not authorized to maintain a waiting list longer than the Open Enrollment period. All students who apply for enrollment must be entered into a lottery for randomized placement into the school as positions become available.
