The 3-Step Process in More Detail

Upcoming 2021–2022 School Year


  • The open enrollment period for the 2021–2022 school year begins on January 1, 2021.
  • For the best chance of enrollment, submit your student’s application before the enrollment period ends.
  • If you submit your application after the enrollment period ends, your student will be offered a seat on a first-come, first-serve basis.


  • Enrollment is open to new students entering grades K–8 living in St. Cloud and the surrounding communities.


  • A lottery will be held on February 22, 2021.
  • Lottery notifications will be sent to families shortly after the lottery took 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.
  • Students may still apply for enrollment after the lottery.

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).

Upcoming 2021–2022 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If you receive an enrollment offer, you have two business days to accept it before it is no longer valid.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.

Upcoming 2021–2022 School Year

After you accept your offer, there is still a third step to assure your student’s seat is secured. In order for your student to be fully enrolled, you must fill out the online Student Registration Form provided in your offer email. Registration deadline reminders will be emailed and shared on the school’s Facebook page.


In addition to completing the registration form, you must turn in the following required registration documents: child’s birth certificate, child’s immunization records, and proof of Minnesota residency.
