If a lottery is determined as needed, it will be held on April 11th, 2021 at 6:00 PM in an open meeting that parents are encouraged to attend.

What if it is determined that there isn’t a lottery needed?

If it is determined that a lottery is not required then applicants will be notified of the status of acceptance.

What do I do if my child is accepted to attend WPA?

Any student admitted to WPA needs to complete the enrollment process by turning in a completed Registration Packet as an indicator of acceptance. Parents will be contacted to set up a day and time to complete a Registration Packet. Students admitted to WPA as of the Lottery date will have until May 10, 2022 3:45 PM to accept or decline enrollment. Students admitted between June 1, 2022 and August 13, 2022 will have 10 days to accept or decline enrollment at the school. Any remaining slots as of August 14, 2022 will be available on a first come first serve basis to remaining waitlisted students. At any time in the application process if the school does not receive the Registration Packet in the specified time period, the Executive Director may decline enrollment to the students and proceed to open those slots up to the waitlist.

What do I do if my child is not accepted to attend Wayne Preparatory Academy?

In the event that a lottery is held and some applicants are not accepted into WPA a waitlist will be generated and those applicants will carry their lottery number onto the waitlist. Rolling Enrollment will remain open through the first 40 days of the 2022-23 school year. If space becomes available during that time the school will fill those spaces using the waitlist. Parents/Guardians with children on the waitlist will receive periodic updates on the status of the waitlist. It is not uncommon for a charter school to fill 10-15 spaces using their waitlist prior to the close of enrollment in October.
