TCP’s overall school capacity is based upon the school’s charter set by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools. TCP enrollment is based upon a lottery system, then waiting lists (based on the date and time the enrollment form was received) once capacity is reached. Eligibility for enrollment is not based upon academic ability, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, income level, disability, English proficiency or athletic ability. Capacity for each program, class and grade level is reviewed on an annual basis based on enrollment projections and therefor capacity in certain areas may be reached before overall capacity is reached.
Freshmen applications will be accepted starting on August 30th of a student’s 8th grade year. Lottery drawings will be held for 9th grade enrollment on October 1st and February 28th. If selected in a lottery, submit in person the Enrollment Packet with all documents by the deadline on the notification letter (see above for enrollment packets and information). If student is not drawn in the lottery, they will be placed on the waiting list according to the date on the Application for Admissions.
Enrollment for 10th-12th comes from a waiting list for those grades. When an opening occurs, a group of students from that grade level waiting list is called. The first to respond, that needs the classes in which there is space, is accepted.
Siblings of currently enrolled students and children and grandchildren of staff and Board Members can receive automatic enrollment if registration is received before February 15th. After this time, siblings may be treated like any other new registrant.
