Applying to North Star Academy

Parents and Guardians interested in enrolling their children at North Star Academy need to complete an application, which can be obtained below or by calling the school’s main office. The application may be returned to the school via email, fax or mail. Upon receipt, a North Star Academy administrator will call to arrange an informational meeting.

For the 2015 – 2016 school year, we only have a limited number of enrollment spots. In accordance with charter school law, students completing the school year are guaranteed a spot for next year if their re-enrollment form is completed and turned into the office. If there are any openings, siblings of enrolled students have the next opportunity to fill slots. If slots still exist new students are accepted. For grade levels with more applicants than spots, a waiting list will be created.
