Enrollment Procedures

Our schools offer an advanced college prep program focused on developing well rounded young adults for success in top-ranked high school prep programs (private, charter, and public). We invite you to visit our schools, meet our teachers, and learn about our program.

Admission process

To enroll at AMS, follow these five steps:

Step 1: Learn About Us. Explore our websites and read our Commitment to Success.

Step 2: Schedule a Tour. You can Schedule a Tour Here or call us at the phone number of the appropriate location below to schedule a personalized tour.

Step 3: Meet Our Staff. After scheduling an appointment, come in to meet with school staff.

Step 4: Submit Your Enrollment Package. Turn in the Commitment to Success and a completed enrollment package with a copy of your son or daughter's birth certificate, immunization records, and any recent standardized tests.

Step 5: Pre-Enrollment Assessments. Bring your son or daughter in for the language arts and mathematics placement exams. All students must take placement exams to ensure they are enrolled in the right courses for their academic success.

Other Considerations 

Mid-year enrollments require a copy of the withdrawal form from the previous school.   

Waiting List / Lottery:

To best serve students at our schools, a low enrollment cap and limited class sizes must be maintained. If by the application deadline the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or building, all applications for that program, class, grade level, or building are selected for available slots through a lottery. The lottery is a random selection process by which applicants on the waiting list are admitted to the schools.  For example, if the number of fifth graders who apply before the end of the academic year reaches a point where there are more than the allowed students in any given classroom, a lottery shall be initiated for placement. Siblings of students currently attending, or accepted for enrollment in the upcoming school year, are exempt from the lottery process.

Following the lottery, enrollment is on a first come, first served basis. Our schools do not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, economic status, geographic location, disabilities, proficiency in the English language, etc. Our schools' admission and enrollment practices comply with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations.

Our schools put forth every effort to, “...inform students in the community about the charter school and to give each student an equal opportunity to attend,” (20 U.S.C. 7221b(b)(3)(I)).  The schools enroll all eligible students who submit a timely application, unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or building (A.R.S. 15-184).
