Enroll Now at Ascent Academy in West Jordan
Ascent Academies of Utah (AAU) is a tuition-free public charter school enrolling K-9 students. Click on the application below to submit an enrollment application for the 2017-2018 school year:
Open Enrollment (OE) for the 2018-2019 school year will begin on January 5, 2018 at 10 AM.
If you applied for the 2017-2018 school year and your application was not chosen, you must reapply for the 2018-2019 school year. We will discontinue use of the 2017-2018 lottery on February 28, 2018.
Only enroll your student in the lottery for the campus at which you intend your student to attend. Enrolling at multiple campuses will not increase your changes of being accepted to the AAU campus of your choice.
Our West Jordan campus may enroll 816 students for the 2017-2018 school year and thereafter. Each elementary grade will have room for 78 students and the junior high will have positions for 90 students in each grade.
If the number of student applications exceed the number of positions available at AAU, students will be randomly chosen to fill available positions; this process is referred to as a lottery. All applicants in the lottery pool will be considered, and a computerized lottery program will randomly select students. Every effort will be made to accept all siblings in an individual family, but this may not be possible due to the cap on class sizes and the lottery process. Siblings of students currently in the school will be given preference if openings become available.
Once you have submitted an application for your student(s) to attend AAU, your child’s application will be held in the lottery pool until a vacancy is available or the OE period ends. The lottery will be held after each OE period. Families will be notified via e-mail of their child’s acceptance into the school through the computerized lottery program. Families selected will be notified of the next steps in the registration process and the timeline they will need to follow. If you do not receive a notice of enrollment after you submit your application, please assume nothing has changed in regard to your students enrollment status.
