How To Enroll Your Child

Core Foundations Academy schools are FREE public charter schools that are open to ALL kids, including kids with special needs. To enroll your child into one of our schools, you simply need to submit an application through our online enrollment portal for the location of your choice during our Open Enrollment period. You do NOT need to sign your application – simply submit it through our easy-to-use online enrollment portal.

In the event that there are more applicants then spots open at a particular school, all applications are put into a lottery which is hosted by a third party company. The Open Enrollment period is NOT first-come, first-served. Only applications completed during the Open Enrollment period are included in the lottery pool. Applications submitted after the Open Enrollment period has ended will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, behind applications received during the Open Enrollment period. You may apply to more than one Core Foundations Academy school, but you must submit separate applications, per student, to each of your preferred locations.

Students currently attending one of our schools will be guaranteed an enrollment slot (seat) for the following year, unless they notify the school that they will not be returning.

Siblings of students must still apply, however, they’ll receive preference and are likely to get in if there is space in the school.

We understand the importance of establishing fair and equitable criteria for student admission and shall fully comply with all state and federal Charter School Laws regarding admission policies and procedures. Core Foundations Academy is a non-sectarian institution in all respects, and does not discriminate against any student, employee, or other person on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability, or any other criteria prohibited by law. An admission criterion does not consider intellectual or athletic ability, aptitude, disability, race, creed, national origin, religion, or ancestry.

Applicants who are offered enrollment will be provided with instructions for accepting the offer, and printing, signing and returning your Registration Packet.

If you have questions regarding enrollment at Core Foundations Academy you can contact the Enrollment Department at (800) 281-6380 or email us at Enrollment@CoreFoundationsAcademy.com

We don’t do any labeling at Core Foundations Academy. At our schools, a student is a student. We will of course provide the special assistance your child requires, however, they won’t be labeled or singled out. They’ll be treated as the brilliant superstar they are.
