In accordance with California State Education Code 47605 (e)(2), in the event that there are more applications than there are seats available, admission will be determined via a public, random lottery, with preference given to:
Children of ASA Fontana Founders (exempt from lottery; shall not exceed 10% of enrollment; this admission preference is only applicable in the inaugural year)
Children of ASA Thrive staff (exempt from lottery; shall not exceed 10% of total enrollment);
Children residing within Fontana USD boundaries (2:1 weighting in lottery);
Children residing within ASA attendance area will be given preference (3:1 weighting in lottery). The ASA attendance area will be shared once the location of the school is confirmed.
All students who are not offered admission at the time of the public admissions lottery will be placed on a wait-list until it is cleared at the end of the academic year for which it was drawn, unless the parent/guardian requests their child be removed from the wait-list prior to that time.
If a space should become available, families will be contacted in the order of the wait-list.
If the offer is extended prior to the first day of school, then families will have 5 business days to respond whether the offer is being accepted or declined.
