Enrollment Information

 

Enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year has concluded. You may now apply for the 2020-2021 school year.

 

 

Enrollment/Attendance Zone Policy

For the purpose of enrollment, Statesboro STEAM Academy will enroll students on a two-tier system from within Bulloch County under a tiered attendance zone. Families wishing to enroll in Statesboro STEAM Academy must submit an enrollment application. Students with an enrollment application will fall into one of three categories: Tier 1, Tier 2 or students with special enrollment preference.

 

Category Definitions

Tier 1: Consists of families residing in geographic catchment areas for Langston Chapel Middle School, William James Middle School and Statesboro High School within Bulloch County.

Tier 2: Consists of families residing in geographic catchment areas for all other Bulloch County Schools outside of Tier 1.

Special Enrollment Preference: Consists of families that have a student (siblings) already enrolled, students of governing board members, and students of employees of Statesboro STEAM Academy.

 

Procedures

In order to determine acceptance of applications, Statesboro STEAM Academy will provide open enrollment to each category, each year. Tier 1 applicants will assume all open spots first. In the event that Statesboro STEAM Academy can only fill 75% of the available seats with Tier 1 students, the remaining seats will then be available to students in Tier 2. If there are more Tier 2 applications than the remaining available seats, a lottery will be held to fill all the available seats. The lottery will include applicants in Tier 1 and Tier 2.

 

Applications in Tier 2 will only be accepted if Statesboro STEAM Academy determines that it has 75% or less of the expected student enrollment for the school year.

 

SSCCAT will follow state laws for enrollment of students at SSCCAT, including appropriate “lottery” procedures as required. Enrollment of students is based on SSCCAT charter contract. Any parent interested in enrolling his/her student at SSCCAT must fill out the enrollment application.
