Admissions Process


Fall 2023 Open Enrollment is December 1, 2022 – February 28, 2023

Thank you for your interest in Discovery Charter Schools.  If you wish to apply to our schools, you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Apply online - one application per child. Only one application is needed to apply for all schools - you will need to select your preferred campus or program as part of the application process. By selecting your second and third choice additional applications will be submitted for those. If you're only interested in one campus, just select the preferred one.  
  2. New families will need to attend one Information Meeting as part of the application process, and an Open House for each campus applying for. For instance, if applying to both Phoenix and Falcon campuses, you will need to attend the Information Meeting, plus attend one Open House at each campus.  
  3. Submit supplemental information as listed in the online application ASAP, but no later than February 28, 2023.
  4. The administration will verify applicant information, including residency and meeting attendance as necessary.
  5. Detailed lottery information will be given to families at least 1 week prior to the Admissions Lottery. Please keep Family ID in a safe place as it is the number used to identify waitlist positions.
  6. Admission Lottery held for each school, waitlists created and posted to the website.
  7. Offer letters will be sent out as space becomes available.
  8. Parents will accept or decline the offer by following the instructions in the “Offer Letter.”

Please note: Submission of an application does not guarantee enrollment.  If there are too many applications for a specific grade level, then enrollment is determined by an Admission Lottery.
