New Summit K-8 Enrollment Process

Welcome to the Admission for New Summit Charter Academy. Our school is a non-profit, tuition-free, public charter school of choice.

The New Summit Charter Academy admissions process has multiple steps and we recognize and appreciate that this may be a new experience for you. The steps to enrollment have been implemented with care and concern for both our current and future students and we welcome any comments or questions you may have during this process.

Step 1:

Fill out the waitlist application form below to start the enrollment process. This is non-binding and is used to show your interest in our school and to give us information about your student’s school history.

Kindergarteners must be five years old on or before August 15 of the upcoming school year in order to meet the age requirement to enroll in Kindergarten.



Step 2:

Once acceptance is determined, an acceptance letter will be sent to your email with instructions on what to bring to the district 20 office. Your student is not enrolled until they have enrolled at the district.


New Summit Charter Academy accepts students for Kindergarten through 8th grade with the exception of children who have been expelled from their previous school or have other pending disciplinary or truancy issues. NSCA may also admit students who have previously declined enrollment or dis-enrolled on a case-by-case basis. Eligible students will be considered for admission on a first-come, first-serve basis and without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, religion, ancestry, or gender.

We accept students from all districts, however, we give priority to those in this order:

  • Founding Families
  • Staff Children
  • Siblings of Currently Enrolled Students
  • D20 Residents

New Summit Charter Academy reserves the right to decline enrollment to students if false, misleading, or incomplete information is included on the enrollment documents. NSCA also reserves the right to deny enrollment requests from students residing outside the Academy School District 20.
