Welcome to Jefferson Academy!
Thank you for your interest in attending Jefferson Academy.
Students will be accepted through a lottery process as seats become available. If interested in enrolling for this year or next school year, we encourage you to apply today!
We are still accepting students for this school year! Enrollment periods for the 2018-2019 school year are on a continual basis as vacancies are available.
Jefferson Academy will start accepting enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year on January 7, 2019 at 10:00 am.
- The first open enrollment period will be held from January 7, 2019 through January 28, 2019. The first lottery will be held on January 28, 2019.
- Open enrollment periods will then be on an as needed basis with lotteries held as vacancies are available.
Currently enrolled students will receive an emailed Intent to Return on December 3, 2018. Intent to Return needs to be replied to by January 14, 2019. Students currently attending the school will receive first preference.
Jefferson Academy may enroll up to 825 elementary students in grades K-6. Available spaces will be filled at random from the lottery pool. Families will be notified via e-mail of their child’s acceptance into the school through the computerized lottery program. Families selected will be notified of the next steps in the registration process and what timeline they will need to follow.
Applications for new families will continue to be accepted throughout the school year. Any openings that become available after the initial lottery will be filled on an as-needed basis through a randomized lottery process.

Should there be more students applied than positions available, student names will be randomly ordered and chosen on that basis, referred to as a lottery. Every effort will be made to accept all siblings in an individual family, but this may not be possible due to the cap on class sizes and the lottery process. Siblings of students currently in the school will be given preference if openings become available.
