How does the waitlist work?
Applicants not accepted at the time of the lottery are placed on a waitlist according to their assigned lottery number. Waitlist applicants are admitted in order, pending openings and capacity. It is the policy of the school to fill openings until the end of January of each school year so that incoming students have the opportunity to make a strong transition into the culture and educational program. Subsequent applicants after the lottery cut off date are wait-listed on a first-come, first-served basis. The waitlist is posted after the lottery is conducted. Please see the Enrollment History to get an idea of waitlist movement over the summer and during the school year.
During the previous year and the summer prior, families have 2 business days from receiving a spot in the school to accept or decline and 5 business days from the time of the offer to finalize registration.
During the school year, families have 24 hours from receiving a spot in the school to accept or decline the available spot and 48 hours from the time of the offer to finalize registration. Attendance is required within 3 days of registration or sooner.
When there is an available space in the school we will call families to offer the position in waitlist order. Sometimes, this call will come before the year begins, the first week of school, or during the first semester.
All applicants are welcome to our Summer Events at IVA. Check out our Interest Events Calendar.
What is the transition like in the middle of the year?
Read a few comment from families making a decision to come to IVA mid-year:
"Our daughter transferred into IVA in November. She was immediately welcomed by students and faculty who made her transition really smooth."
"Last December, six months after my twins began middle school, we received a call from IVA to say that they had a space for my son. We had been on the wait-list for such a long time, had given up, but were told that there was an available spot unexpectedly. As a family of twins, we entered the lottery as a family unit and so both siblings were allowed to enter. My son was excited but not my daughter. With 24 hours to decide, we discussed it together and decided to make the move. And even with my daughter's hesitations, we have never looked back... IVA has proved to be a way better fit for both of my children. They have both adjusted and thrived in the new environment."
