Registration & Admissions

Admission

Admission to The Open Classroom is open to all students entering grades K – 8.

Before you apply to the Open Classroom, we want to make sure you understand that this is a unique charter school. Take some time to look at the Philosophy and Family Involvement pages on this website. These pages will give you some idea of what we stand for and what we will ask of your family.

Registration

Online registration is on-going for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please reference your registration email, and contact Nicole in the office with any queries

The Admission Process

It is now required that you attend either our Parent Information Night or a school tour to have your application included in our enrollment lottery. Be sure to sign in at either event. If you have already attended either of the above, our records will so indicate. If the scheduled times and dates don’t work for you, individual tours may be scheduled. Contact the school at 801-578-8144 and speak with Nicole.

The Admissions Lottery for the 2021-22 school year was run on 02/19/2021.
Admission notifications will be sent 03/05/21. If you applied and have not received an email regarding your application status, please call the office
Applications are still being accepted, and new applicants will be placed in the waitlist in the order received
We will begin accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year starting November 1, 2021. The open enrollment deadline for the 2022-2023 school year is February 17, 2022. At this point we will run a lottery in which each applicants is assigned a random number. Applicants with the lowest numbers will be given first access to any available spaces, and those applicants not placed will be put on a wait list. Applications received after February 17 will be placed on subsequent wait lists. Fill out an online application form

Families will be notified of the lottery results two weeks after it is run. If your child is offered a space, we ask that you please let us know by the deadline stated in the letter you will receive whether or not you plan to enroll your child. If we do not hear from you by that deadline, we will offer the space to the next student on the waiting list. Applicants with sibling/s currently enrolled will receive priority.

Your child’s chances of being admitted vary, depending on how many applicants are applying and the number of available spaces.
