How do I apply for enrollment?
Students apply for enrollment by filling out an online application, at which point their name will be placed in a lottery. According to the rules which govern Idaho’s public charter schools, admission priorities will be given to the following groups:
- Children of the school’s founders and employees.
- Siblings of students who will be attending MMACHS during the upcoming school year.
- After admission of the above-mentioned students, priority will be given in the following order:
- On-time applications of students living in the West Ada School District boundaries
- On-time applications of students living outside the West Ada School District boundaries
- Late applicants will be placed in the lottery/waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.
To apply for the 2018/2019 school year:
- The application window will open January 8, 2018, at 8:00 am. Links can be found on the MMACHS website.
- Applications must be received no later than noon on February 9, 2018.
- There will be two Open House events for prospective students on January 9th or January 11th, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Choose the night that fits your schedule. The open house begins promptly at 6:30. Student led tours begin at 6:00 pm.
- Students applying after Feb. 9th will be placed on the wait list on a first-come, first-served basis. The lottery for the 2018/2019 school year will take place at the West Ada District office around Feb 15, 2018.
What happens if my name is drawn in the lottery?
Acceptance notification will be sent on February 16, 2018. Parents must notify MMACHS of their acceptance or rejection of enrollment by March 3, 2018.
If parents do not notify MMACHS of their acceptance in writing by March 2, 2018, we assume that enrollment has been rejected.
If a student accepts enrollment at MMACHS, they will be invited to a new-student orientation, in which all of the appropriate paperwork will be filled out; and they will then be officially considered a future MMACHS student!
What happens if my name is on the waiting list?
Sometimes students decline enrollment at MMACHS, in which case, we will immediately offer the spot to the next person on the waiting list. Any time you’d like, you may call MMACHS (855-4075) to see if there have been any recent changes to the waiting list. The most change to the lottery list occurs right before the next school school year starts.
What if my student is not drawn for the 2018/2019 school year?
We do allow incoming sophomore students if there are openings available. If your student is not selected to attend MMACHS during their freshman year, you must reapply next year.
