The Acceptance Process

Families who receive enrollment to The Hope Academy through the lottery will be notified in writing and via email. Upon notification, the family will need to confirm their intent to accept enrollment by submitting a confirmation statement to the school within fifteen (15) days of the lottery. The Hope Academy will make a reasonable effort to contact enrolled families. If a family fails to confirm enrollment by the established deadline, The Hope Academy will offer enrollment to another family in the first position on the waiting list. If a family chooses to decline enrollment their slot will then be offered to another family in the first position on the waiting list.
