Applying for the Lottery at Vista is Easy
1. Simply fill out the Lottery Application using the red button to the right of your screen.
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 only. After the initial lottery, siblings of accepted students will be accepted in the order of their lottery number.
We also allow siblings admitted to our partner schools including Ace Academy, St George Academy, and Tuacahn High School students to have priority over other students on the waitlist during the lottery. Likewise, if a student is admitted to Vista School and you have a sibling applying to one of our partner schools they will receive a sibling priority to that school. If you have a sibling attending or has been accepted to one of our partner school then your Vista School applicant will be placed on the Sibling Priority list which gives priority over other waitlisted students.
Who Do I Contact About Enrollment?
