Apply to Attend an APS Charter School



The new student application window for the 2020-21 school year was initially open from January 29, 2020 until March 2, 2020. Between March 3 and March 16, participating charter schools conducted their lotteries through Apply APS Charter with lottery results released on March 16, 2020 to parents/caregivers who submitted an application during the application window. On March 17, 2020, the Apply APS Charter application portal re-opened and parents/caregivers may submit new applications for the 2020-21 school year. All remaining seats will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. For schools without remaining seats, students will be added to the school’s wait list.
