2018-2019 Open Enrollment
Monticello Academy is a K-8 public charter school, with approximately 75 students in each grade level. Those interested in applying as a new applicant for any grade level are encouraged to attend an orientation meeting before submitting an application. Applications can be submitted online during the open enrollment period January 29 to March 2nd, 2018. Our orientation meetings will be held on the following dates:
Students that have not been admitted from the previous lottery are also encouraged to attend an orientation meeting and are required by law to submit a new application to enter the lottery. Parents will be notified regarding a student's acceptance by email and/or phone. Applications will be located on this website under the "Online Registration" link.
Admissions and Lottery Policy
Each year Monticello Academy will designate an enrollment period. Monticello Academy will consider the application of any student who resides in the state and submits a timely application received on or before the closing deadline, regardless of the order received.
Federal and State laws recognize the propriety of preferential enrollment under certain circumstances.
Consistent with UCA §53A-11-904(3), a student may be denied admission to the School if he or she was expelled from that or any other school, during the preceding 12 months.
If the number of applications for enrollment exceeds the maximum number of students for any grade level, students in that grade level who do not have preferential enrollment status will be selected by random lottery. Each year a new lottery is held.
Each student in the lottery will have an equal opportunity to be selected for enrollment in the school. When a student is randomly selected, the siblings of that student will also be selected for enrollment, subject to space remaining in the respective grade levels of those siblings. To guarantee fairness, each student name will be mathematically weighted so that family size does not give an unfair advantage in the lottery.
Students not selected will be eligible for enrollment as space becomes available in the order determined by the lottery. Additional applications received after the enrollment period deadlines will be considered for enrollment in the order they are received after the names in the original lottery have been exhausted. Waiting lists do not extend to subsequent years.
Credit and Graduation Requirements for Transfer Students
Monticello Academy will approve credits and grades received from accredited public or private schools that align with or are comparable to the coursework and requirements of Monticello Academy. Credit earned at a school accredited by the Utah State Board of Education or the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges is accepted according to equivalency. Credit earned at non-accredited schools must be reviewed by the Credit Review Committee. In addition, students who transfer to Monticello Academy must meet all Monticello Academy graduation requirements.
Students are officially enrolled at Monticello Academy when a parent or guardian has completed any registration paperwork required by the administration. Registration forms may include, but are not limited to, disclosures and acknowledgments regarding uniform standards, discipline policies, or any other necessary items. Students may not be enrolled without providing a current birth certificate and proof of current immunizations. Acceptance in the admission lottery does not guarantee a position in Monticello Academy. The school reserves the right to set reasonable deadlines for enrollment after a family has been notified of acceptance.
