Applying for the Lottery at Vista is Easy
1. Simply fill out the Lottery Wait List form using the button to the right. (Do not move onto the enrollment steps page unless you receive a formal invitation indicating that you have been accepted to Vista School once the lottery has been held).
2. If you have questions concerning your lottery status, contact enrollment.
What is a Lottery?
A lottery gives every student a fair and equal chance at being able to attend a charter school. If there are more students who would like to attend a charter school than there are available seats, a random lottery is conducted to determine the priority for enrollment.
What is Sibling Priority?
Sibling priority allows siblings of admitted Vista Students to have priority over other students on the waitlist during the lottery. Once one sibling is accepted into the school, then his or her siblings are moved to the Vista Sibling Priority (VSP) list during the initial lottery and are offered a seat as soon as one becomes available. After the initial lottery, siblings of accepted students will be accepted in the order of their lottery number.
*Note: if you have an admitted Tuacahn High School student, your Vista applicant will be placed on the Tuacahn Sibling Priority (TSP) list which gives him/her priority over other waitlisted students.
Who Do I Contact About Enrollment?
You can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. This e-mail is checked daily during regularly scheduled school days.
