Application & Enrollment
All students who reside in the state of Oregon are eligible for admission to Rockwood Preparatory Academy (Public Charter School). Oregon Charter School law allows students to apply to the school from outside the school district without an inter-district transfer.
Applications are accepted beginning in the first week of January each year for the following school year.
As per our Charter School Agreement, priority will be given to students as follows:
* Current students
* Siblings of current students
* Students residing in that school district
Out of district students
In the event that RPA receives more applications than there are openings in a specific grade, a random lottery will be held. The lottery is normally held the first week of April.
For each grade, the student applications are divided into two groups: In-District and Out-of-District. Once the lottery is conducted, all students who have been selected for admission will be notified. The remaining students will be placed on a waitlist in the event of future openings.
Applications will still be accepted after the first lottery. These applications will be drawn on May 1st and June 1st and will be added to the current waitlist.
Following notification, all students admitted will receive an application packet. It is the parent’s responsibility to return the complete application packet by the appropriate deadline to enroll the student. Students are not officially enrolled until all paperwork is complete and turned in to the school office.
