Application & Enrollment

General Information
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.

At the current time, RPA has a limited number of openings in grades K-5.

IMMEDIATE ENROLLMENT: Available student slots will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis between July 1st and February 28th of each school year. New students will NOT be accepted for immediate enrollment between March 1st and June 31st of each school year.

ENROLLMENT FOR NEXT FALL: Pre-Enrollment is currently underway for the 2022-2023 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 Reynolds 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 on the first business days of March, April, and May.

Lottery Process
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.

Pre-registration will still be accepted after the first lottery. These candidates will be drawn on April and May 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.
