Application and Admissions System
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 and 6th grade applications will be accepted starting on the date designated on our school calendar of a student’s 8th grade year for freshman or 5th grade year for 6th graders.
The incoming freshman and sixth grader lottery drawings will be held in October and February with a third drawing possible if availability arises. (see the calendar for exact dates).
If selected in a lottery, submit the enrollment packet with all documents by the deadline on the notification letter. 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 grades 7th-8th and 10th-12th comes from a waiting list. 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 pupils already enrolled in the charter school and children and grandchildren of staff and Board Members can receive automatic enrollment if registration is received before the 1st lottery. After this time, siblings may be treated like any other new registrant.
