Admissions

We welcome students from throughout the Kansas City Public Schools district in Kansas City, Missouri, to our public charter school. On these pages, you will find a link to our online application, read our policies regarding age, siblings and residency, and learn how and when to apply. Because there are typically more applicants than places available, a lottery system is used to generate a random list for the incoming kindergarten class, admitting 198 new students per year.

The lottery was held March 7th, 2018 and information made public, all applicants have received a status update email that indicated whether or not their child has been accepted or is on the waitlist. Additional information will follow and can be accessed through your personal SchoolMint account. 
 
Campus assignments will be made at a later date. 
 
OPEN APPLICATION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED. ANYONE APPLYING WILL IMMEDIATELY BE PLACED AT THE END OF THE WAITING LIST.

How to Apply

Using an Académie Lafayette application or a Common Application, families can apply during an open admission window every year.
