New Student Enrollment Procedure
Confirmed enrollment for full-time students occurs when a family completes the following procedure:
Contact Principal Sahnow to confirm space is available for your student and to schedule a school tour.
Principal Sahnow will send you a link to the online registration form. It must be completed with all required information and submitted electronically.
Students wishing to attend ACE for the first time must complete the registration form before placement testing is scheduled.
To maximize student success, ACE has a limit on the number of students for each class. Space will be allotted based on the following criteria.
Returning Students: Space will be allocated for returning students based on their promotion to the next grade and applicable level. Slots will not be held in two levels.
Siblings: If space in a class remains after currently enrolled students’ slots are determined, siblings of those students receive remaining classroom space. Should a sibling enroll, withdraw, and then later wish to re-enroll, they will be added to the wait list if no space is currently available.
If more students for whom registration forms have been submitted than classroom space is available, the ACE administration will conduct a lottery. Students’ names will be placed in a hat, and the administrative staff will fill remaining spaces with the first student’s name pulled from the hat, and so on. When a student name is selected, the family is called, and given 24 hours to accept the opening. If they decline or fail to respond, ACE moves to the next name on the list.
Remaining names from the lottery will be maintained on a wait list should space become available. Additional registration forms are accepted throughout the year and names added to the waiting list. Should space become available in a particular classroom, the wait list will be consulted.
