What is a lottery? When will a lottery happen?

If the number of applications at the end of an enrollment period exceeds capacity for a grade level, a lottery will be held. Families will be notified of the results of the lottery (whether or not their child has received an offer for a seat). Those students who are not given a seat will be placed on a waiting list for their respective grade level.

How will I learn the results of the lottery and know if my student has been offered a seat?

Parents will be contacted by email and/or phone. Parents will be notified of the results of the lottery (if necessary) and if their child has been offered a seat. If a student is placed on a waiting list, families will know where they are on the waiting list for their grade level. Please note, it is the responsibility of the parents to make sure their submitted contact information is correct and up-to-date to receive timely communication from SOCA.

Will my child have to reapply and participate in the lottery every school year?

No. Once your child is officially attending SOCA (enrolled, registered, and admitted), they will have the opportunity to re-enroll in future years, provided that:

  1. Students continue to be a resident of Ohio, and
  2. Students are eligible according to academic and disciplinary guidelines as stated in the Family Handbook.

Students that are not re-enrolled by the deadline of next year’s re-enrollment period cannot be guaranteed a seat for the next school year.

What happens once I am notified that my child has been offered an available seat?

  1. Parents must accept the offer for an available seat within three (3) business days of receiving notification. Without a timely response, the seat is forfeited to the next applicant in line.
  2. Once parents have accepted the offer for enrollment, registration begins. Parents have seven (7) business days to submit and complete the required registration forms, including all required documentation. If the required registration is not completed within the allotted time, the seat is forfeited to the next applicant in line.

SOCA will open with grades Kindergarten through 6th grade and grow by one grade level per year until it is a K-12 school.
