Registration for 2017-2018 for Grades K through 8
Enrollment registration for the 2016-2017 school year is closed as of March 24th, 2017 for grades K-5.
The lottery process is how we fill any open slots and how we create our initial wait list for kindergarten, primary school and middle school. You may apply for our current year or the year to come(see link below). Any application received will be placed in any open slots or placed on the wait list as appropriate, you will receive a confirmation email. Please contact our Enrollment Coordinator with questions: 952-226-8185, email@example.com.
Hard copy applications should be hand delivered or US Mail only or apply online via link above. Applications received after Dec. 16th at noon will be placed on the bottom of the wait list in the order received.

Notification of placement begins via email
Applications are available mid-winter for enrollment the following fall, check above for release and due dates. By Minnesota law, we are required to hold a lottery if we receive more applications than slots available. Unlike a private school, we are not allowed to do a first come, first served application process. All applications received during the open enrollment period prior to the deadline will be on equal footing for the lottery. The office will begin to notify families the day after lottery regarding enrollment status/wait list number. Enrollment packets will begin to be sent out later in the month.
CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR
We only accept enrollment for the current school year if there is space available. We do not accept applications for future years until our next open enrollment period. We may still have space available in certain grades. Please contact our Enrollment department for availability, 952-226-8185.
If you list an email address on the application, we will send confirmation as to the wait list number that your child will be placed at. Due to large number of families on our wait list, and due to the constant movement on our wait list, we do not regularly update families as to their position on the wait list. When a spot becomes open, we will contact you again to get you the full enrollment packet which includes immunization forms, emergency contact forms, request for records forms, etc. Once a child is fully enrolled and begins attending classes, you do not need to re-enroll each year.
When you have a child who is currently registered, then any younger siblings being enrolled in the future will have preference over new families. We look for sibling preference before determining how many spots will be available for open enrollment. This also means if you have multiple children on our wait list and an opening becomes available for one child, his or her siblings jump ahead on the wait list. For purposes of our lottery/wait list process a sibling is defined as "children related by blood/marriage/adoption." Preference is also given to foster children and staff children.
MN law requires students to be five years old on or before September 1st to enter kindergarten and six years old on or before September 1st to enter first grade--unless the school board decides otherwise. The Aspen Academy school board has chosen to follow state guidelines with respect to Kindergarten cut-off dates. Our Kindergarten is an all day program.
