How to Apply

Steps in the application process:

We call it an application process because you submit an application for available spaces, but it’s not selective admission.  There’s no essay and no transcript submission.  Remember:  we’re not picking you, you’re picking us!  🙂

As a public charter school, NPA fully complies with applicable Arizona laws regarding charter school admissions.  Those with a legally sanctioned sibling, child of staff, or child of board relationship have preference, but all others are on equal footing in applying, and only need to be residents of Arizona at the time of enrollment (first day of school).

  1. Obtain application packet from a Showcase session, by mail request, or online (online form coming November 2020!).
  2. Complete all application packet materials.
  3. Submit completed application packet to NPA prior to the end of the Open Enrollment Period.  The deadline for submitting applications is 4 pm on FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 2021.  Obtain receipt for Application Packet from NPA receptionist.

NPA expects to notify applicants of lottery results at the beginning of February.

See “Applying Post-Lottery” link at right regarding post-lottery applications.
