2018-2019 Lottery Applications Are Now Open!

We are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year!

Wayside Schools uses a lottery system to ensure all applicants are given equal opportunity for enrollment. All applications must be received by March 23, 2018, and results will be made available on our website April 2.

If your child is selected in our lottery, you must attend an Enrollment Session to complete their enrollment. If selected, details for the Enrollment Session will be emailed to your address on file.

If you are not selected – do not worry! You will be placed on a waitlist and we will call you if spots become available, including spots at our sister schools (all located in Southeast Austin).

We encourage you to apply to all of our schools’ lotteries to increase your chances of acceptance. However, multiple applications for the same student at one school will not increase the student’s chance of securing a spot. 

We are accepting lottery applications for the following:

Wayside: Altamira Academy                  (PK3 – 5th Grades)

Wayside: Eden Park Academy               (PK3 – 5th Grades)

Wayside: REAL Learning Academy       (PK3 – 5th Grades)

Wayside: Sci-Tech Preparatory             (6th – 12th Grades)

See directions below to apply to the lottery.
