How to Apply for the 2018-2019 School Year
The enrollment process for new students consists of two main steps:
Intent-To-Enroll. Anyone who submits an Intent-To-Enroll form will be offered a seat if one is available, or else placed on the waiting list for that grade.
Confirmation. Once parents are offered a seat, they have 48 hours to confirm their interest.
Student Registration. Once parents confirm, they will have 14 days to complete the Student Registration process. Registration secures a student's place on the school roster and gives the school the information needed to request information from a student's previous school and set up a student's schedule.
Open Enrollment Period
Seven Oaks will begin receiving applications for the 2018-2019 school year during the "open-enrollment period." The open-enrollment period for the 2018-2019 school year runs from 8:00am (EST), Monday, December 4, 2017, until 5:00pm (EST), Friday, March 9, 2018. All “Intent-To-Enroll” forms received during this period will receive equal consideration. Once the open-enrollment period ends, seats will be offered. Anyone offered a seat will be directed to complete the Student Registration process at that time.
Once students have been notified of an available seat and have confirmed their intent to enroll, they have fourteen (14) days to complete a full Student Enrollment Form. Failure to do so will forfeit an applicant’s position in line. After the receipt of the Enrollment Form by Seven Oaks Classical School, the student’s name will be added to the appropriate grade level list.
Applications received after the open-enrollment period will be processed in the order in which they are received.
Public Lottery & Waitlist
If at the end of the open-enrollment period there are more enrollees than available seats in any grades, a lottery will be scheduled for Monday, March 19. This lottery will be conducted by random drawing or software randomizer in a public meeting at a time set by the administration. The lottery will determine the order of admissions. From this ordering, seats will be offered according to the number of vacancies. Families who do not attend the lottery will be notified by telephone, e-mail, or U.S. Postal Service. Failure of an applicant to confirm his or her intent to enroll within 48 hours of the date of the telephone call or e-mail, or within three (3) business days of a post-marked letter, will forfeit his or her position in line. Parents or guardians notified by mail will be instructed to call the school immediately upon receipt of the notice in order to confirm their child’s intent to enroll.
Interested in Transferring this School Year?
Seven Oaks accepts transfer students throughout the school year, subject to availability of seats. In each case, students enrolling must follow the enrollment procedure set forth by the school.
