  • If you submit your application after the enrollment period ends on February 24, 2019, your student will be offered a seat on a first-come, first-serve basis.

LOTTERY

  • If there are more applications than available seats, a lottery will be held on February 25, 2019. Add to my calendar.
  • We will begin sending lottery notifications to families shortly after the lottery takes place. You will either receive an offer letter or a notification of wait list. Watch your email closely so you do not miss a notification.

Athlos Academy holds an annual open enrollment period every year. Submitting an application makes your student eligible for a seat according to the school’s policy and state law; it does not guarantee your student a seat.

Athos Academy of St. Cloud is held accountable to all state enrollment laws. According to the school’s enrollment policy, all applications for enrollment will be subject to a lottery admissions process (See Student Policy 5102 for more information).

Current 2018–2019 School Year

If you receive an enrollment offer, you will be given a date when you must accept or decline your offer before it expires.

Upcoming 2019–2020 School Year

If you receive an enrollment offer, you have two business days to accept it before it is no longer valid. Keep an eye out for email notifications regarding this important deadline. Reminders will be shared on the school’s Facebook page.
