Lottery Policies and Procedures

It is the policy of The Ranches Academy to abide by federal and state guidelines concerning student registration. Applications received between October 1 and January 31 will be placed in the general lottery pool. Any applications received after January 31 will be placed in our third lottery pool and will only be entered into a lottery if the lottery results from the initial  lottery are exhausted.  The Ranches Academy randomly pulls first from the Preference Pool, second from the General Pool and last from the After January 31 Pool. When a vacancy occurs because a student has withdrawn, The Ranches Academy may immediately enroll a new student from its randomly generated lottery list of applicants. The lottery is held the first Wednesday in February each year.
