Who can apply?

How do I apply?
Enrollment procedures are as follows:
- Attend one of the scheduled Parent Informational Nights to learn about the unique learning experience at Flex Academy.
- After each informational meeting, Parents will be given the Flex Academy application to complete.
- Families who live outside of the Little Chute School District will need to file the necessary paperwork for Open Enrollment.
- Procedures for doing this can be found on the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
Is there an enrollment cap for Flex Academy?
Yes, there is a cap of 100 students for the 18-19 school year.
What if applications exceed the enrollment cap?
If there are more applicants than spaces available, enrollment will be determined based on a lottery established by the Flex Academy Governance Council and the school’s by-laws. The lottery process will be conducted by an independent party.
Current Flex Academy students, siblings of current Flex Academy students will receive enrollment preference. Waiting list spots will be determined by the lottery drawing as well. Online applications that are received after the established window are added to a waitlist in the order in which they are received.
What if my child is not picked during the lottery?
If applications to Flex Academy exceed the student enrollment limit, a lottery drawing will be held based off the online applications. Applicants will be notified of their lottery number by email and provided with further instructions.
Note: Students who live outside the district MUST open enroll within the Little Chute Area School District.
What if I live outside of the district and want to open enroll my student at Flex Academy?
The Little Chute Area School District’s Open Enrollment window begins in February and goes through April.
The primary requirement for admission to the school is the timely submission of the online application by the stated deadline.
NOTE: Upon approval by the Little Chute School District, special education students, who apply by the deadline will be admitted to the admission process. Notification of acceptance will be made by the district.
If I submit an application for multiple children is it possible that one would be accepted and not the other?
Once one child in a family is accepted to Flex Academy all current K-8 siblings who wish to attend will be accepted.
If my child is accepted, do I need to re-apply each year?
No, if your student is accepted into Flex Academy they are enrolled for their K-8 academic years.
If my child is currently on the waiting list, do I need to re-apply for the next year?
Yes, applications and wait-listed students will not carry over from year to year.
