Are you ready to be a dragon? We are currently enrolling for the 2023-24 school year. Fill out our application today! It only takes a few minutes.
Syracuse Arts Academy (SAA) Open Enrollment (OE) period for the 2023-2024 school year began on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. through Wednesday, February 1, 2023. The first lottery was held on Thursday, February 2, 2023. Any openings that become available after the first lottery run will be filled on an as-needed basis throughout the year using a computerized lottery process.
Please note, it's common for parents to not be notified of acceptance until after school begins. As much as we try to anticipate enrollment counts and notify as many families of their acceptance before school begins, some families may not be notified until after school begins.
Families will be notified via e‐mail of their child’s acceptance into the school and through the computerized lottery program. Families selected will be notified of the next steps in the registration process and what timeline they will need to follow.
Please keep in mind if you are enrolled in the 2022-2023 school year and your child has not been selected, you will need to re‐enroll in the database for the 2023-2024 school year. They will not be “rolled over” to the next school year. Preferences for teachers, administrators, board members, or siblings of current students will be in accordance with our charter application and state and federal laws. Every effort will be made to accept all siblings within an individual family, but this may not be possible due to capacity on class sizes.
Although students currently attending SAA will not be placed in a lottery each year, they will need to indicate their intent to return by registering for the 2023-2024 school year and complete an Annual Policies Acknowledgment. This information was sent to parents in January 2023.
The school does not discriminate in its admission policies or practices on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, disability, or any other protected classification.
Syracuse Arts Academy will not discriminate in its admission policies or practices on the same basis as other public schools may not discriminate in their admission policies and practices.
The Lead Director will select a time period each year to begin the Declare Intent Process and when to begin accepting student enrollment applications for the next school year. These dates will be posted on the school’s website in accordance with state law. State law currently requires a 60-day notice be provided before the beginning of the next year’s Open Enrollment.
The school will continue to pull students from the lottery process as directed by the Lead Director throughout the year.
If a student is not selected prior to the end of the current school year, the enrollment applications will not be automatically carried over to the next school year.
Please let your school secretary know immediately if you do not plan to return for the 2023-24 school year as we have a waiting list for families looking to attend SAA.
1) If you would like to decline your student's spot for the upcoming school year, please email the appropriate office including the student's name and the name of the new school that your child will be attending next year. NOTE: If you need assistance or if you need to arrange to use a school computer to complete this process, please contact the office at 801-779-2066.
*Parents of current 9th grade students, if you do not have new siblings to add, no further action is required.
