Orientation Sessions

All interested families must attend one Orientation Session. Sessions will be held on Thursdays. After attending the orientation session, interested families will submit an application for potential enrollment. 


Prior to applying for admission to e³ Civic High, the student and parent and/or guardian should complete the following:


  • Attend Orientation (Thursdays):  We invite the student and/or parent/guardian to attend one complete orientation session. These sessions will be held on Thursdays.  During the sessions, an еᶾ representative will detail the mission, vision, and program of e³Civic High. 
  • Student Application: A parent or guardian must complete the simple, online, non-discriminatory application by the end of the enrollment period (March of each year).  We utilize an online application system called SchoolMint.  Interested families should create a SchoolMint account and complete the online application, once the application is completed the qualifications are met, the name will be entered in our lottery. 
  • e3 Policy Acknowledgement: Once the student and a parent/guardian are decided on applying for admission, they will be agreeing to abide by all policies and procedures set forth in the e³ Civic High Student Handbook and Digital Use Policy which will be available in both English and Spanish.



Should e³ Civic High receive more applications from potential students than can be admitted to the 9th-grade class, enrollment will be determined by a random electronic (“Lottery”). e³ Civic High will enlist the services of a 3rd party outside agency to monitor and verify the fair execution of all activities related to holding the Lottery using the following rules and procedures, which will be communicated to all interested parties at least thirty (30) days prior to holding the lottery.   The school shall keep on record copies of that confirmation.


Lottery Process

The lottery will take place within thirty (30) days of closing the open enrollment period which will be at least ninety (90) days long.


All interested parties will be informed via email, prior to the holding of the lottery, of the total number of openings available at e³Civic High, and the number of openings for each grade served by e³ Civic High. If the lottery date requires a change, all families who have expressed an interest will be notified via email. 


In accordance with federal non-regulatory guidance, as outlined in Appendix J of the Public Charter Schools Grant Program Request for Application, the lottery will be conducted as a single public lottery with all applicants receiving equal weight and an equal chance of selection.


Lottery Exemptions and Preferences

Exemptions and preferences will be offered in the following categories in accordance with a reconciliation of state and federal laws as outlined in Appendix J: Matrix of Exemptions and Preferences in the Public Random Drawing (Lottery):


  • Children of the Founding Development Team (defined as the small group of people responsible for the drafting of documents and for efforts that resulted in the petition being approved and are so listed in Appendix B) or full-time e³ Civic High faculty will be exempted from the lottery and automatically enrolled in e³, limited to no more than 10% of the student body.
  • Siblings of students already enrolled in e³ Civic High will be exempted from the lottery and automatically enrolled in e³ Civic High unless the sibling is to enroll in a grade that has all of its spaces already filled. Siblings of students who have their name(s) drawn during the lottery (i.e. both students are applying in the same year) will be exempted from the lottery and automatically enrolled in e³ Civic High unless the sibling is to enroll in a grade that has all of its spaces already filled.


Mid-Year Enrollment 

After the lottery is held and all waitlisted students have accepted or declined seats, a new waiting list will be started for admission to the upcoming school year.  The school maintains 4-grade level waiting lists (9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade lists). Students will be placed on the waiting list according to the corresponding grade level.  


All scholars will be placed on the waiting list according to the date that they inquire and complete the e3 online application. If an offer is extended to the Student, an email will be sent to the email provided during the application process. Families have 72 hours to accept the seat before we move on to the next student on the list.
