Wallace Stegner Academy may have limited openings become available during the 2019/2020 school year.  The school will fill seats through a random lottery selection process based on the current enrollment.  When a lottery is held, those students selected will be notified with information on how to register for the 2019/2020 school year.

  • The first enrollment window will open on April 1, 2019, and close at 4 PM on April 9th, 2019 with the lottery to follow.
  • Open Enrollment periods will then be on a continual basis with lotteries held as vacancies become available.  Apply today!

Currently, enrolled students will be notified of the Intent to Return process.  Intent to Return declarations will be sent out on February 11th, 2019 and need to be returned prior to March 7, 2019.  Currently attending students will receive first priority for the 2019-2020 school year through the Intent to Return process.

If seats become available for the remainder of the 2018/2019 school year, openings will be filled using the 2019/2020 lottery.  If you have previously applied to WSA and not been accepted, you will need to complete a new application for the 2019-2020 school year.
