LISA Academy's annual lottery will be held at every campus on February 12, 2020 at 9am. The lottery process is open to the public. Directly following the lottery, all applicants will be notified regarding their status by email.
With a college acceptance rate of 100 percent, LISA Academy has earned the reputation of providing a distinct, high-quality education. Our schools also have the honor of being Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field pioneer schools.
The mission of LISA Academy is to provide an academically rigorous college preparatory program, in partnership with students, families, and the community, and guide all students in gaining knowledge, skills, and the attitude necessary to direct their lives, improve a diverse society, and excel in a changing world by providing dynamic, resource-rich learning environments.
Our vision is to enable students to succeed in school and in the workplace, and to provide an option for students to enter math, science, and engineering careers. This will lead to students becoming productive and responsible citizens and even Nobel laureates.
Submission of Applications and Admissions Lottery
LISA Academy requires applicants to submit a complete application form in order to be considered for admission. The application period begins in November and ends in February. Specific dates will be published on the school website. A public, randomized admissions lottery will be conducted if the total number of applicants exceeds the number of open enrollment spots. Notification will be made automatically through the online application portal. Failure of an applicant to accept the offer and complete the enrollment process by the stated deadline will result in the forfeiture of his or her offer. Once all enrollment spots have been filled by the lottery, the remaining applicants will be randomly placed on a waiting list. If a vacancy arises before the commencement of the school year, the individual on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission and then removed from the waiting list. If an application is received after the application period has passed, the applicant’s name will be added to the waiting list behind the names of the applicants who timely applied. LISA Academy campuses will each conduct individual lotteries (LISA West Middle/High, LISA North, LISA West Elementary (formerly Chenal), and LISA Springdale). Students must apply separately for each campus.
