Please refer to the information below for the required documents to be submitted as part of our charter school admissions in South Phoenix, AZ.

Please Note: Kindergarten Enrollment Requirements 

Per the Arizona Education Code 15-821 (C), “a child is eligible for admission to kindergarten if the child is five years of age. A child is deemed five years of age if the child reached the age of five before September 1 of the current school year.”  Children who will turn five between September 1 and October 31 may apply for an age exception to enter kindergarten early. However, the school will only allow admission if:  

  • The student attempts to enroll prior to June 30th of the upcoming school year.  
  • Capacity exists in a classroom prior to the first day of school.  
  • The child meets academic entrance criteria and demonstrates social and emotional maturity.  The child should perform similarly in respect to behavior, social, emotional, and academic skills to their older classmates to meet the challenges of kindergarten.  

Such a determination will be based upon one or more consultations with the parent, parents, guardians, the children, the teacher, and the school leadership.  The final determination will be based upon the school administration recommendation.  The school will not allow admission to kindergarten if the child is five years of age after October 31 of the current school year.

A.R.S. § 15-184 (A, B, E)

South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy does not limit admission based on ethnicity, national origin, gender, income level, disabling condition, proficiency in English language, or athletic ability.

South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy has a fair and equitable policy to enroll all eligible students in grades  K-4, who submit a timely application, unless the number of applicants exceeds the capacity of the school facility. South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy gives enrollment preference only to those students who are returning to the school for the second or any subsequent year of operation and to siblings of pupils who are already enrolled in South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy. Should the number of eligible enrollment applications exceed the capacity of a grade level, South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy will utilize a lottery system. The lottery will also determine waiting list order for any unselected applications. Applications received after the open enrollment window closes will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

South Phoenix Prep & Arts Academy may refuse to admit any pupil who has been expelled from another educational institution or who is withdrawn while in the process of being expelled from another educational institution.
