Application and Lottery Process

Jumoke Academy Charter School Admissions and Lottery Process:

APPLICATION PROCESS

  1. Fill out an application to Jumoke Academy. Applications can be found at jumokeacademy.org or obtained at any of our school buildings or offices, regardless of which school you are applying to. (834 Asylum Ave, 875 Asylum Ave, 250 Blue Hills Ave, 339 Blue Hills Ave, Hartford CT).

If your child is a SIBLING of a current Jumoke Academy School, there is a separate application. Jumoke Academy subscribes to the “Sibling Policy”, which means siblings of current Jumoke Academy Scholars are given preferential admission to all Jumoke Academy schools. The definition of a Sibling is as follows: A blood relative brother, sister, cousin, or child living in the same household for whom you are legally responsible. Sibling status does NOT apply to siblings of graduating 8th grade students.

Siblings will be placed directly on the admissions list and be admitted as space allows, in the order their applications were received. The deadline for sibling applicants to be admitted for the 2016-2017 school year is February 27, 2016.

  1. Applications for the 2016-2017 school year MUST be submitted, in their entirety, by MARCH 3, 2016. Applications can only be submitted in person at 834 Asylum Avenue at the Jumoke District Office, otherwise they may be faxed to 860-244-9618 or emailed to admissions@jumokeacademy.org. Applications will not be accepted at the school building offices.

If, by the submission deadline, Jumoke Academy Charter School has received fewer applications than there are seats available in the school, the school will enroll its applicants and will not hold a lottery.

LOTTERY PROCESS

Upon submission of a complete application, all applicants will be given an application number. These numbers will be given in order that applications are received. Jumoke Academy will notify all applicants of their application number by mail or email prior to the lottery drawing.

The lottery drawing for the 2016-2017 school year will be held on March 24, 2015 at 5pm in the auditorium of JAH-SMaRT Middle school located at 339 Blue Hills Avenue in Hartford, CT. Each grade level will be drawn separately, in a lottery drum. Application numbers will be mixed, and randomly selected to determine an order for the admissions list of each grade. Students will be admitted, as space in each grade allows, in the order that is determined during the lottery drawing.

Once all available seats have been filled based on the order applicants were selected, the remaining applicants in the pool will be placed on a waiting list ranked in the order that they were drawn.

Jumoke Academy will notify all applicants of their position on the admissions or wait list as soon as possible after the lottery drawing. Parents and students need not be present for the lottery drawing, although the drawing will be open to the public.

In cases where applicants apply after the lottery is held and a waiting list is already created, the new applicants will be placed at the end of the existing waiting list, in the order their applications are received.

    Good morning,

    I wonder if you leave a few seats for children who may have recently moved to the area. I have a new tenant who relocated to Hartford from West Haven last month. Her two grandsons, ten and seven, both “A” students, are enrolled in the Rawson School. They are traumatized by the profane language used by the other kids. The oldest one is bored out of his mind. He says that the teacher doesn’t teach. They attended school for two weeks and the 7 year old received a mid-term report with D’s and F’s. The mother and grandmother wonder if the teacher recognizes that the child is a new student in the classroom. I could say more, but I’m sure you’ve read enough. Is there any way of getting these two bright boys into Jumoke Academy for September?

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Have a blessed day!
    Denise Best

    Good evening, I’m interested in putting my daughter in your school for her 7th grade year. But I was not aware that Jumoke had a lottery as well. We are moving from Avon to Hartford and I would like her to be a canidate for Jumoke. Do You have a late enrollement? And is this different than the CREC lottery?

    When do you start applying? My granddaughter is 15 months now and I want to know if there’s a waiting list. Also, do you have a pre-K?
