Students wanting to enroll at Gateway Academy must first fill out and submit this Application for Admission form, which will be reviewed for eligibility. Student will be eligible if they live within the Gateway Academy School District(s), are no more than 20 years of age (as of September 1st), and meet 9th through 12th grade placement criteria. The school will not discriminate on the basis of gender, national origin, ethnicity, religion, disability, artistic, academic or athletic ability, or the district the student would otherwise attend. The Charter District may deny admission to applicants who have a documented history of criminal offense, juvenile court adjudication, or discipline problems.
Applications for the next school year will be accepted from May 1st through June 30th. If by that date, the number of eligible applicants does not exceed the number of vacancies, then all applicants who timely applied are offered admission. If there are more eligible applicants than available spaces, then a lottery will be conducted on July 1st. A name is drawn for each vacancy that exists and each applicant whose name is drawn is offered admission. The remaining names will then be drawn and placed on a waiting list in the order they were drawn. As a vacancy arises, the individual on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list. An applicant’s name whose application is received after the application deadline is added to the waiting list behind the names of the applicants who timely applied.
