ENROLLMENT PROCESS

As an independent (2r), public (tuition-free) charter school, enrollment is open to all students. There are no boundary restrictions - all new students who apply have equal chances of admission. Although we’re no longer taking applications for the current school year, we’re excited to announce our enrollment procedures for the 2022-2023 school year!

 

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on January 1returning families and new families are welcome to submit an online application(s)* for their child(ren), grades K-10, for the 2022-2023 school year in our SchoolMint enrollment platform, which will be accessible via the LCCA website. Returning LCCA students are guaranteed a seat for the 2022-2023 school year, and siblings (new to the school) of existing students will be given enrollment priority to any available seats in each grade as long as application deadlines are met. All remaining seats will be offered to new students.  

For RETURNING students (currently enrolled at LCCA), between 9:00 a.m. on Jan. 1 and 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 15, 2022, guardians are asked to log into their SchoolMint account and complete an enrollment application(s) for each child. Be sure to select the “Returning Students” option from the dropdown menu.  Offers for RETURNING students will be sent on Jan. 16 and must be accepted by NOON on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022, or your offer(s) will be rescinded.   

 

In addition to filling out application(s) for returning student(s), if you would like to enroll siblings who are new to LCCA, you will need to select the “New Students” option from the dropdown menu to fill out an application for these siblings. Siblings of existing students will be given enrollment priority for any available seats in each grade. After siblings of returning students, any remaining seats will be offered to new students.  

​  

Families with students currently enrolled at LCCA who neglect to fill out a 2022-2023 re-enrollment application for their student(s) by 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 15 will automatically lose their seat(s)/enrollment priority. Should these families decide to re-enroll their children at a later date, they will need to apply without enrollment priority between March 1 and June 30, at which time their children may be put on a waitlist. 

 

For NEW students, guardians should create an account in SchoolMint and add all students (grades K-10) to the account who you would like to enroll at LCCA for the 2022-2023 school year. You can do this at any time. Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Jan. 1, you may log into your SchoolMint account and submit applications for each of your students. Be sure to select the “Lake Country Classical Academy – NEW students” option from the dropdown menu. All applications for the January enrollment period must be received by NOON on January 31. We are offering an open house at both our East and West locations on Thursday, Jan. 27, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for new families to see the classrooms (currently K-4th at our East campus, and 5th-9th at our West campus) and talk with teachers about the LCCA curriculum and general experience. 

 

LCCA cannot be held responsible for applications that are completed with missing or inaccurate information. Please ensure that you apply for the correct grade for the 2022-2023 school year and indicate if your child has a sibling already enrolled in the school.  

Grade-specific lotteries for NEW students will be held on Feb. 1, and parents will be notified of their offer(s) and/or waitlist status by 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 1 via an email from SchoolMint. The lotteries will be electronically conducted through our SchoolMint enrollment platform. To secure your seat(s), offers for NEW students must be accepted in SchoolMint by NOON on Feb. 11, or the offer(s) will be rescinded, and your seat(s) will be given to the next child on the waitlist. (Consider monitoring your spam folder for LCCA emails via SchoolMint.) 

After Jan. 15, existing families who do not submit an application in the January enrollment periods or who do not accept their offer(s) for the 2022-2023 school year by Jan. 26, will no longer receive enrollment priority. If you decide to reenroll your child at a later date, you will need to apply between March 1 and June 30, at which time your child(ren) may be put on a waitlist. 

New families who receive and accept an offer(s) by Feb. 11 will be asked to fully register your child(ren). Registration will be open beginning Feb. 1, and all registration forms* and fees must be completed/paid by NOON on Feb. 28, or your offer(s) will be withdrawn, and your seats will be given to other students on the waitlist (or made available to other families who apply before June 30). Although LCCA is tuition-free, just like any other public school we do have some required fees. In particular, non-refundable fees** ($125 per new student; $100 per returning student) must be completed/paid by NOON on Feb. 28, 2022, or your offer(s) will be withdrawn.  

An additional enrollment period may be held in March 2022, if several seats are still available, and in which case, all registration forms and fees of students who apply in the March open enrollment period will be due by April 29 or all offers will be rescinded. If a March enrollment period is deemed NOT necessary (if there are only a few remaining seats available), we will continue to take applications for all grades K-10 between March 1 and June 30, and families will either receive an offer or their child(ren) will be put on the waitlist in the order in which applications are received.

LCCA School Uniform Policy

LCCA will require student uniforms. The purpose of the uniform is twofold:  1) simplify the matter of student attire by removing the competitive nature of clothing; and 2) promote an identity with the school. Although the dress code provides many options in choices, all students are expected to be neat and clean in appearance.

Families can purchase daily school uniform items from the store of your choice (such as Land’s End, French Toast, Old Navy, Gap, Walmart, Target, Land’s End, and AmazonSmile). If you buy anything off of AmazonSmile, be sure to select LCCA as your charity of choice!  

Every student will be required to have one formal uniform that will be required every Friday (October - May) and for special occasions (performances, school photos, and community events). These items may also be worn during a regular school day as well. Select formal uniform items (including plaid clothing, ties, sweater vests, and blazers) must be purchased from FlynnOhara.com. The shoes, socks, tights, shirts and pants pictured on our Flynn O’Hara shop meet LCCA’s formal uniform requirements but may be purchased elsewhere. Optional crested and non-crested items are available on FlynnOhara.com as well. All plaid jumpers and skirts, and blazers will be stiff upon arrival – machine wash/dry first before wearing (no ironing required)! P.E. uniforms for 7-9th grade will also need to be purchased through LCCA’s store on FlynnOhara.com.

Why we chose Flynn O’Hara as our uniform provider:

  • Generous warranty and return policy

  • Wide range of sizes  

  • Free Zoom fitting appointments

  • Competitive pricing  

  • Free returns  

  • Free shipping over $75 

  • Great customer service

Before Care is available beginning at 6:30 a.m., and After Care is available until 6 p.m., Monday - Friday, at both school campuses. The cost per child is $6 an hour. Our program will be staffed by LCCA faculty, staff, and parent and community volunteers (all will be pre-screened).
