FUTURE STUDENTS FOR THE 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR:
Initial Enrollment Period for the 2023-2024 School Year will run from January 11th, 2023 to February 28th, 2023.
ENROLLMENT & ADMISSIONS PROCESS
The initial enrollment period started on January 11, 2023 and runs through February 28th, 2023.
Students who currently attend SAA will be asked to submit a re-enrollment form to ensure their spot for the 2023 – 2024 school year.
A separate application form must be filled out for each applicant. Parents are responsible for ensuring that information submitted is accurate and up to date.
All new applicants will be entered into a lottery that will select students for enrollment and generate a wait list for classes exceeding the maximum class size. Students who withdrew from SAA must re-apply through the lottery system if they wish to return.
As wait lists roll over from year to year, we will place students
on the list for the grade they would attend, assuming that they are promoted one grade each year.
Children of SAA employees and sibling preference is granted to siblings of students who are enrolled at SAA for the 2023-2024 school year. If the class is full, they will be moved to the top of the waiting list.
Students will be given preferential treatment if they meet any of the following exceptions:
(please circle the number which applies to the applicant)
As spaces become available throughout the summer and next school year, SAA will invite applicants on the waiting list to enroll. It is the responsibility of applicants to assure that the school has up to date contact information. Applicants that cannot be reached will be removed from the wait list. Once notified, applicants will have three business days to schedule an enrollment appointment. Applicants who fail to make the appointment or enroll will be removed from the waiting list. The seat will be offered to the next applicant on the waiting list.
Parents (or a family member) are expected to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours for the school year. Single-parent families are expected to volunteer a minimum of 5 hours for the school year. Attending PTO Meetings counts toward this requirement. There will be school sponsored volunteer projects for students and parents throughout the year. The PTO will publish a list of possible volunteer hours at the beginning of each school year. Parent contract volunteer requirements may be reduced or waived for families due to economic hardship or extenuating circumstances. Parent Contract does not give families the option to donate funds to the school in lieu of completing the expected volunteer hours.
