2020-2021 Enrollment 

Wallace Stegner Academy may have limited openings become available during the 2020/2021 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 2020/2021 school year.

  • The current & returning students registration window will open on January 6, 2020, and close at 4 PM on January  17, 2020 with the lottery to follow on February 1, 2020. 
  • Open Enrollment periods will then be on a continual basis with lotteries held as vacancies become available.  

If seats become available for the remainder of the 2019/2020 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.
