The St. Louis Charter School Charter and Missouri Law state;
“The school will enroll all students who respond by submitting timely applications. If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the school, a lottery will be used to determine admission.”
Initial enrollment for students who attend St. Louis Charter School is established through a lottery system. A student application must be filled out and all required documents submitted in order to be placed in the lottery. Openings are accessed monthly to ensure a fair and equitable opportunity for each applicant to receive admission to the school. Preference is given to families who have siblings currently enrolled.
Lotteries are held on an as needed basis by the school registrar for available spaces in a particular grade. Applicants selected in the lottery are notified via phone and in writing and need to complete and submit all required enrollment paperwork by the stated deadline. If the applicant’s enrollment paperwork is not fully submitted by the deadline, the student application will not be placed back in the lottery.
Student applications remain active in the student applicant lottery until they are selected and enrolled or officially withdrawn from the lottery by their parent/guardian.
Once selected, the parent/guardian and student must sign the SLCS Family & School Sucess Plan indicating their willingness to follow the policies and procedures at St. Louis Charter School.
