Wasatch Charter School accepts at least 75 new students per school year, with 75 seats available in each year's kindergarten. In grades beyond kindergarten, the school typically accepts an additional 50-70 new students, with an average of between 2 and 8 openings in each grade, grades 1-8, each year.
It is recommended that parents attend a school information session/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 recommended that an information session is attended before fully enrolling, to ensure that Waldorf is a good fit for your family and child. If the timing does not work out to attend a February or March information session (as detailed above) before enrolling your child in the school, we request that you read about Waldorf education (resources available under the About tab on our website) to ensure that Waldorf is the right fit for your student.
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.
If a student is currently enrolled in another public school, is offered a seat at Wasatch Charter School, and the parent chooses to enroll the student at WCS, the parent should inform the previous school that they will be leaving to enroll in a new school, and complete any withdrawal process requested by the former school. Upon completion of the registration packet for WCS, WCS will send the "Transfer of Records" request form, as filled out by the parent in the WCS registration packet, to the previous school. This will serve as an additional notification to the previous school that the student has withdrawn. In the WCS registration packet, the parent will sign a form stating that their student is enrolled in only one public school at that time, meaning that the parent has completed the appropriate withdrawal process from the previous school. The timeline for the process of enrolling in WCS is given in the acceptance email, including the deadline for turning in the registration packet, as the timeline varies depending on when in the year the student receives acceptance to WCS.
If a student is currently enrolled in WCS, and the parent chooses to enroll the student in a different school, whether another charter school or a district school, the parent will inform WCS of the intention to transfer, via email to an administrator, by calling the main school number and informing the school secretary, or by printing and filling out the Withdrawal Form below, and submitting it to an administrator via email or in-person in the school's main office. The Withdrawal Form constitutes the parent's intention to transfer their student to another school, and WCS will withdraw the student from enrollment in WCS either when the Withdrawal Form is received or on the date the parent indicates for withdrawal on the form. It is then the parent's responsibility to complete the new school's registration process according to their policies, in order to be enrolled in the new school. If the transfer is to take place between one school year and the next (during the summer break, when the student is not currently attending school), the parent should notify a WCS administrator of their intention to transfer, as soon as they enroll in the new school, without delay. Students are not to be enrolled in more than one public school at a time, so it is the parent's responsibility to notify their current school of their intention to transfer, as soon as it is known to the parent that the student will be transferring.
