enrollment at wasatch

A lottery will be held to randomly award seats at WWCS for spots that become available for the next school year.

Parents may submit an application for enrollment by clicking the link on this page, for the year you are interested in.

In accordance with Utah state law, applications may be made available several years in advance. Also in accordance with state law, Wasatch Charter School will accept applications and run an early lottery for kindergarten roughly 18 months in advance, in February. Lotteries to award seats for all grades, including any seats remaining in the lowest incoming grade, will be run in February for the following school year (roughly 6 months in advance). Additional lotteries will be run on an ongoing basis as needed, following the initial lottery draw. Parents will be notified after the initial lottery that their child has been given a waiting list number, and may be contacted at any time after March if a seat is available. Please note: state law does not allow a charter school to carry over a waiting list from one year to the next. If your child does not get into our school one year, and you are interested in applying again for the next year, you must complete a new application for the new school year.

It is recommended that parents attend a school tour to learn more about the Wasatch Charter School curriculum and approach prior to enrolling in the school. This may be done before or after submitting an application to the lottery system, but it is strongly requested that a tour is attended before fully enrolling, to ensure that Waldorf is a good fit for your family and child. School tours are offered the first Tuesday of each month during the school year (barring school breaks) at 9:00 am. 

After the lottery is run each year in February, you may still add your student to the waiting list by clicking the link above for the appropriate school year. Families will be notified by email or phone if a spot becomes available for their student. Notifications may come at any time, on a rolling basis, as space becomes available.

When a Student is Accepted, Required Registration Information will include: 

• Completed Registration Forms
• Original Birth Certificate
• Current Immunization Record
• Proof of Vision Screening (Kindergarten only)
• Special Education Information (if applicable) – If your student has been serviced in Special Education, we will need to obtain a current copy of the IEP or 504 so that our resource team can address the needs of your student. Wasatch Charter School will request records from your student’s current school upon registration.
• Proof of Custody / Guardianship (if applicable)

How do I transfer to a new school?

Utah State Law governs student transfers between Utah’s public charter schools and school districts.

If a student has accepted enrollment to WCS for the school year and the parent wishes to withdraw the student from WCS for enrollment in another Utah charter school or school district, the parent of a student enrolled at WCS must obtain approval from both the WCS administration and the Utah school district or charter school in which enrollment is sought. The WCS administration will provide such approval once notice of approval by the new school has been received.

If a student wishes to enroll at WCS but has accepted enrollment to another Utah charter school for the school year, the student’s parent must obtain approval from both the WCS administration and the Utah charter school in which the student is already enrolled. Student records will be released as soon as all appropriate paperwork is completed.
