(Contact the Academy for information on Part-Time and Exchange Student Admission)
The Academy does not discriminate against students of a particular race, color, national origin, sex or disability*. Full-time students are those who take a minimum of four classes per semester at the Academy. Children of Academy founders, and full-time returning students and their siblings seeking full-time enrollment will be accommodated provided returning students complete course registration forms by the deadline indicated and founders' children and siblings of returning students apply by the second Friday in March. Applicants who reside within School District 271 shall be given priority followed by those who reside outside district 271 but within Kootenai County, followed by applicants outside Kootenai County. If more students apply for admission to the Charter Academy than can be accommodated, a lottery will be conducted. All students whose applications are filed by the close of the enrollment period will be separated by grade and residence and entered into a lottery. Those applicants in the lottery who are not admitted will be placed on a waiting list in the order their names are drawn. All students who apply after the second Friday in March will be placed on the waiting list based on the date and time the application is received, regardless of the student’s area of residence. The number of openings per class will be established by the board based on school configuration needs.
Siblings of newly accepted full-time students who are seeking full-time enrollment will be accommodated provided applications were received by the second Friday in March.
In addition to submitting an application and as part of the application process, a parent is required to meet with the Academy’s principal or his designee to discuss the school’s mission and expectations. This meeting must take place before an accepted student can complete the registration process.
All applicants will be notified by mail regarding acceptance. Enrollment procedures and forms must be completed by the date specified in the acceptance letter or the applicant will lose his/her space, allowing an opening for the next person on the waiting list. If a new student is unable to attend school within 10 days of the start of the year/semester for which he/she was accepted, admission will be denied and the student will need to reapply for a future opening.
*The Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy does not discriminate on the basis of disability in our admission policy, or in providing access to programs or activities to students who, with or without special education or related aids and services, are able to meet the essential standards of the Academy.
