Lottery & Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in SGCA!
We begin enrolling for the next school year the first day back after Thanksgiving break. The SGCA Lottery Team will continue to fill openings for the school year as fluctuation occurs throughout the spring and summer. Please be patient during this process. Due to the 48 hours allotted for acceptance and one week time period allotted for families to return enrollment paperwork, notifications will be made as quickly as possible.
Beginning the Application Process
  1. Fill out the online Application form.
  2. When notified attend the informational meeting. Here you will be given detailed instructions on enrollment.
  3. Once you have completed the formal enrollment you will be given 48 hours to make a decision and respond regarding your child’s acceptance.
  4. If there are more enrolled students than available spaces students will be entered into our lottery system and names are randomly drawn for enrollment selection.
Enrollment Preferences
According to state Statute 1002.33 a charter school may give preference to the following student populations:
  1. Students who have successfully completed a voluntary prekindergarten education program under ss.1002.51-1002.79 provided by the charter school or the charter school’s governing board during the previous year. (Our Governing Board operates SGCA preschool, a separate entity from the charter school. Therefore, VPK graduates of SGCA preschool, will be given preference in the enrollment process.) Click here for more information on the SGCA preschool.
  2. Students who are the children of an employee of the charter school.
  3. Students who are the children of a member of the Governing Board of the charter school.
  4. Students who are siblings of a student enrolled in the charter school.
  5. Students who are children of military personnel.
