Process of Open Enrollment details:
Fill out the online Application for Enrollment (found below)
Arrange a time to come to the school office to bring in the additional required enrollment paperwork. The office accepts enrollment paperwork Monday-Thursday from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM during the school year.
During the summer months of June, July, and August, you must make an appointment to bring in your additional enrollment paperwork. Email the Executive Director, Lisa Heyne at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at 616-459-0330
During the Open Enrollment period, once you have turned in the Application for Enrollment and all the required paperwork, your application will be considered complete and your student will be eligible to be part of the lottery. Applications submitted after the Open Enrollment period will be accepted on a first come, first served basis as long as there is room on the class roster.
If a grade level has more enrollment applicants than we have seats available, we will hold a lottery in early February
Current enrollees, staff members’ children and siblings of current enrollee's are placed first
After that, the lottery is random. The lottery continues until all names have been called in order to give applicants a spot on the waitlist
Applicants are called off the waitlist in a rolling manner- as soon as there is a spot, they are called and families will have a limited amount of time to accept their spot.
After the lottery through to the beginning of the new school year, we continue to accept applicants. These applicants are placed on a class list immediately if there is space, or on the next spot on the waitlist if there is not.
At times, we accept mid-year transfers. Call the office at 616-459-0330 for more information.
Please review the form below and make sure you have all the information ready before starting. The application will take 15-20 minutes to complete.
