Lottery Process

If the number of applications exceeds the available spaces in one or more grades, attendance, except for existing pupils of the school and students with preferences shall be determined by a public, random drawing of all prospective students who have completed the application process.

All applicants who are exercising a preference must submit their applications by January 31, 2020.

As permitted by state and federal charter law, University Preparatory School has adopted and maintained policies granting admission preference in the following order:

  1. Sibling(s) of admitted or attending student(s). Sibling preferences may not be exercised by student applicants who have previously attended U-Prep and subsequently transferred to another school.
  2. Children of the University Preparatory School employees
  3. Residents in the Shasta Union High School District boundaries
  4. Students who were in either the first or second lottery the previous year, and remained on the waiting list all year

All other qualified applicants who submit a completed application by January 31, 2020, are considered to be in the First Draw.

Current students, who have indicated that they are returning to U-Prep, keep their status as enrolled students. Applicants, who have preferences and have applied by January 31, 2020, are next to be enrolled. The remaining spaces are open to lottery. If the remaining spaces can accommodate all of the first draw applicants, they will be admitted on February 1, 2020. If First Draw applicants exceeded the number of available spaces, they are drawn before students who applied after the First Draw deadline (January 31, 2020).

February 1-29, 2020

Second Application Phase

Second Application Period: February 1 -- February 29, 2020. All forms must be postmarked, scanned and emailed, faxed, or received by February 29, 2020.

All applicants not accepted by February 1, 2020, are drawn randomly and assigned a number. If First Draw applicants exceeded the number of available spaces, they are drawn before students who applied after the First Draw deadline (January 31, 2020). All Second Draw applicants are then drawn and assigned a number. Students who are not enrolled are put on a waiting list based on their number; they will be called as spaces open. When notified about an available space, parents have two days to respond; if no response is received, the space will be forfeited and the student placed on the bottom of the waiting list.

After February 29, 2020 ...

Open Application Period

Open Application Period: After the second application period, applications will continue to be accepted. Students who apply after February 29, 2020 will automatically be placed on a waiting list after students who were drawn during the lottery. Placement on this list is determined by the date the completed application is received.
