The Great Hearts Rollover Period extends from Monday, October 19th to Friday, November 6th 2020.
If your student is not offered a spot for the current academic year, and if the student’s waitlisted application is eligible to rollover to the next school year’s waitlist, the academy/enrollment department will contact the parents/guardians before open enrollment for the following school year begins. This will allow the parents/guardians to roll the application over to the next school year’s waitlist. If parents/guardians rollover, they will not have to reapply for the next school year, and the application will move up the waitlist with other rollover applications. These rollover applications will be ahead of new, incoming, non-prioritized applications submitted for that school year during the open enrollment and post open enrollment period.
Applications cannot roll over from one academy to another. For example, waitlisted 5th grade applications for Archway Veritas cannot be rolled over to 6th grade at Veritas Prep. Furthermore, applications received after August 15th for the current school year are NOT eligible to roll over onto the waitlist for the next school year.
It is each parent/guardian’s responsibility to ensure that their application rolls over each year, so that they can climb further on the list.
Your eligibility to elect to roll over the 2021-22 application is contingent on your 2020-21 waitlist application. Should your student receive an offer for 2020-21 any time, even during or after the Rollover Period, the application will not be eligible for rollover and/or canceled for the 2021-22 waitlist.
The enrollment Parent Portal will show parents all eligible applications to roll over to the next school year after selecting the Rollover Applications button. Please review the next question for more rollover criteria.
There are certain criteria for applications to be eligible to rollover:
Applications must be active on the 2020-21 waitlist with a status of Waitlist.
Applications must have been submitted in the enrollment system by August 15, 2020.
Applications must not be on a waitlist for an exit grade at an academy that does not offer the rising grade. Ex: For example, waitlisted 5th grade applications for Archway Veritas cannot roll over to 6th grade since it is not offered at the academy and must apply during Open Enrollment for the corresponding Veritas Prep.
You will see your 2021-22 waitlist number/s after the Great Hearts lottery is complete on January 19, 2021; an email communication will be sent to all families once available. Just a reminder, roll-over applications will be ahead of new, incoming, non-prioritized applications submitted for that school year during the open enrollment and post open enrollment period. Rollover applications are not entered into the lottery, only open enrollment applications.
Your current 2020-21 application will remain on the waitlist for the remainder of the current school year. If you cancel your current application or are offered a seat for the current school year, the rollover application will be removed from the 2021-22 waitlist.
If you do not complete the roll over process by Friday, November 6, 2020 and still wish to remain on the 2021-22 waitlist for a possible offer, you can submit a completely new application during the Open Enrollment Period. This period will begin on November 9, 2020 - December 11th, 2020. The Open Enrollment application will be organized after any rollover applications based on a randomized lottery number.
