How to apply
The application window for the 2018-19 school year lottery has closed. Families can still submit applications for Kindergarten-Third Grade for the 2018-19 school year. If RISE Prep currently has seats open in your district, you will be notified. If there are no available seats your child will be added to our waitlist. To apply online, please click here and create an account for our online application system, SchoolMint.
You may also print and fill out a paper application. Paper applications are also available at our main desk.
Your application status
We will conduct the lottery on March 1st, 2018. Families will be notified by March 8, 2018 if their scholar has been accepted. Families with scholars who do not receive a seat will be notified of their assigned waitlist number.
If a seat opens for a child on the waitlist following the initial lottery, you will be notified via SchoolMint, the program we use to manage the application process. You can view your waitlist status on SchoolMint anytime after the lottery is complete. You can also check your status via the Android and iOS SchoolMint apps.
