Lumin Education has established January 10 – February 23 as the application period for students interested in enrolling for the 2017 – 2018 school year! Visit one of our campuses today to complete and submit your application packet!
Admission is done by a lottery drawing from applications submitted during the “designated application period.” Each child is given a number and names are drawn randomly for each age category. Once all openings have been filled, a waiting list is developed by lottery from the remaining applications submitted during the designated application period. Applications received after February 23 at 2 p.m. are accepted and placed on the waiting list behind applications submitted during the designated application period.
* It is very important that we receive your completed application during the designated time period. Unless your child is currently enrolled, you will need to turn in a new application for the 2017 – 2018 school year.
HOW TO APPLY
One application applies to all schools. You may express preference for one school if you wish, but in order to maximize your chances of acceptance we will offer you a spot at the first available school. If you wish to decline that spot, you may, and your name can remain on the wait list for your preference school.
