Our Enrollment & Lottery Process

We’ve offered a simple outline of our enrollment and lottery process below, but for more detail about each of these steps, please see our official Enrollment Policy.

Step 1: Meet the District Residency Requirements

  • Enrollment is open to any child who resides inside or outside of the Weld County RE-4 School District. Non-district resident students may be accepted for enrollment only after all resident students on the waiting list for the same grade have been offered a position.

Step 2: Submit your Letter of Intent

  • Once you submit your Letter of Intent you will be put on a waiting list. The waiting list is determined by the date and time that a completed Letter of Intent is submitted to our Registrar.

Step 3: Participate in the lottery

  • Our enrollment lottery takes place every January to select students that are eligible to enroll every August. Students are entered into the lottery only if they have filled out and submitted a Letter of Intent.

Step 4: Enroll your student (if selected)

  • If your child is selected in the lottery, you will receive a phone call and an email offering your child a position at the school. You will then need to formally accept the position to begin the enrollment process.

We appreciate the family-feel of Windsor Charter Academy, and doubled with their academic excellence, we don’t want to send our child anywhere else.
