Enrollment Info

Musicall Advanced Academy for the Performing Arts Enrollment policy was originally established in the charter application. In accordance with federal and state anti-discrimination laws, Musicall Advanced Academy for the Performing Arts Campus will not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, or disability against a student in its school admission process. An open admissions policy will be implemented wherein the School will be open to any student, as described in A.R.S.§15-184 who submits an application (prior to the posted deadline), unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the program, class, grade level, or building. In such case, all applicants shall have an equal chance of being admitted through a random selection/lottery process.

Enrollment applications will request the student’s name, expected grade level, parent/guardian name, phone number, home address, and email address. Musicall Advanced Academy for the Performing Arts will not collect information pertaining to minority status, racial/ethnic background, gender, social-economic status, or special education identification as part of the application process. Submitted applications will be stamped with the date and time.

Enrollment Procedures

Musicall Advanced Academy for the Performing Arts Campus is accepting applications for future enrollment through the Open Enrollment process. If the number of applications received exceeds the capacity of a grade level at the end of the Open Enrollment period, the school will hold a random lottery for each grade level in order to ensure a fair and equitable enrollment process. In alignment with A.R.S.§15-184, the school will give enrollment preference to the following student populations prior to holding a lottery:

In the case of available spaces at Musicall Advanced Academy for the Performing Arts that priority would be given to:

  • Returning students
  • Children and grandchildren of employees of the school or charter holder
  • Children and grandchildren of governing board members
  • Students who are siblings of a student enrolled in the charter school

Once all open spots are filled, the lottery will continue to establish an order of the remaining applications for a waiting list. Students who are selected within the lottery process will complete a full registration packet. Families of students on the wait list will be contacted if a spot becomes available and will be required to complete a registration packed in order to be officially enrolled. If the number of applications falls short of the established capacity, all students will be contacted and offered enrollment.

Supplemental registration periods may be held for the purpose of reaching student capacity. Once the target is attained in each grade level, a wait list will be formed based on the order that applications are received.
