How Enrollment Works

  1. Join our online lottery waitlist! This is the same lottery waitlist used for the American Academy K-8 program). An email confirming the details submitted to our waitlist will be sent to the email address you provided. Please keep this confirmation email for reference.

  2. The American Academy enrollment lottery will be run on December 5th (or the first school day thereafter should the lottery date fall on a weekend). All students entered in the American Academy lottery waitlist by 11:59 pm on December 4th are included in the lottery on December 5th. For more information on our lottery procedure, please review the American Academy Enrollment Policy.

  3. Wait for an offer call and email. The email will be sent to the email address you provided when you joined our waitlist -- please refer to the confirmation email if unsure which email address to check. Enrollment spots will be offered, and calls will be made, in lottery order. Enrollment calls start each year in January for the following school year. KindiePrep enrollment priority happens in the following order:

    • FIRST PRIORITY: Current American Academy families

    • SECOND PRIORITY: Families added to the lottery waitlist before December 5th are included in the lottery, based on lottery order

    • THIRD PRIORITY: Families added to the lottery waitlist for KindiePrep after December 5th, based on sign-up order

  4. Read the American Academy policy in the Parent Handbook for more information on all lottery procedures, including KindiePrep and K-8.

  5. If you receive a phone call and/or email from KindiePrep with an offer of a spot in KindiePrep, you will have 24 hours to call or email and accept or decline that spot.

  6. If you choose to accept an offered spot in KindiePrep, you will have five days to complete the registration paperwork.
