Application and Lottery Process

Jumoke Academy Charter School 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.

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.

If you are accepted to Jumoke Academy, you will be notified by the Admissions Department for further enrollment instruction. 

Please note: In order for the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) to offer fair enrollment opportunities at interdistrict magnet and public charter schools for Connecticut resident students, the CSDE prohibits the practice of enrolling a student in full-time interdistrict magnet school or a public charter school concurrently with a part-time interdistrict magnet school, this is known as “dual enrollment.”  Dual enrollment is prohibited by the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE).
