    • When maximum capacity is reached, a waitlist will be established, and applicants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

    Enrollment Procedures for 2021-2022 

    • Students currently enrolled in Delta receive priority enrollment for the subsequent school year. 

    • Delta middle school students receive priority enrollment into the Delta High School program.
    • All non-Delta students (grades 5-11) must complete an application to Delta in order to be considered for the 2021-2022 school year. These students are required to complete an application and meet with the program director. Applications from students enrolled in grades below fifth grade will not be accepted.

    • For all applications completed prior to the third Monday of December:
      1. The lottery will be conducted in the Delta Office Conference Room with the program director, the district director of student services, and faculty representatives. 

      2. The lottery will rank order every applicant. 

      3. For students who gain admission, the program director will contact families in writing to extend an offer. This admission offer will be contingent on completing a Delta shadowing experience. 

      4. For students who do not gain admission at that time (applications complete prior to third Monday in December), a waitlist will be established based on the order determined via the lottery. For students not gaining admission prior to the following school year, the program director will offer priority admission during the next enrollment cycle. 

      5. Any subsequent applicants will be added to the end of the waitlist. As openings become available, applicants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Should any student in this situation not gain admission for the desired year, these students may request to be included in the application pool for the following school year, without priority enrollment.

      6. If the number of applicants is fewer than the projected openings for the subsequent school year, then all applicants will be offered admission.  This admission offer will be contingent on completing a Delta shadowing experience. 

      7. If the number of applications is greater than the projected openings for the subsequent school year, then the program director will conduct a lottery to determine admission. 

    • If at any time a student chooses to leave the program, he or she will need to apply again to return, without any priority status.
