Parents will be notified concerning the outcome of the enrollment process when the process below has been completed. Students may be placed on a waiting list, depending on space availability. For all grades, a student’s position on the waiting list depends on the date of application and priority status. Enrollment priority status is given to existing families in good financial standing. In addition, The Freedom School reserves the right to determine and grant priority status on a case-by case basis, in order to achieve its vision of intentionally welcoming families of: under-represented races, cultures; lower socio-economic status, and refugee/immigrant status. Members of New City Fellowship Church living in failing school districts may also receive priority status.
