Open Enrollment

Open enrollment is from mid-December through March of the year prior to admission. In April of each year, a lottery drawing is held if the number of applications exceeds the number of available spots. Those not selected in the lottery are automatically added to IVA's wait-list, and will be notified when an open spot is available. We cannot guarantee a space for all interested students and, therefore, encourage all to also apply at their neighborhood middle school or another middle school of choice.

Applications are accepted throughout the year, but only those submitted during Open Enrollment are eligible to take part in the lottery drawing. Applications submitted outside of the Open Enrollment period, or in the months of April through November, are added to IVA's wait-list. 

The wait-list is refreshed each year so make sure to fill out a new application each year if a spot in admission is not received. 

 

How to Apply for this next School Year

Applications for the next School Year will be released in December of the current year. Applications will be released on paper and also available for online submission each year in December. 

Those using the IVA mailbox after regular office hours, please indicate the time and date submitted. If sending via U.S. Postal Service, the postmark date will be honored.


 Admission Step-by-Step & Timeline

  • Choose IVA: Attend one of our IVA CHOICE Nights, scheduled between December and March, or schedule a campus tour.
  • Apply: Submit an application during Open Enrollment, which is anytime between the third Friday in December and the third Friday in March. Those received during Open Enrollment will be entered into our public lottery. (Others will be added to IVA's wait-list.)
  • Public Lottery: A public lottery drawing is typically scheduled for the end of March and is open to the public. Names are randomly chosen until available spaces are filled. Remaining names are placed on the wait-list in the order they are chosen.
  • Notification of Admission: All applicants are notified of lottery results within 10 days of the drawing.
  • Register: To secure the spot, students selected in the lottery drawing or admitted from the wait-list must return registration materials by the deadline.
