The Sarasota School of Arts and Sciences has an enrollment capacity of 750 students.

Application Process

Sarasota School of Arts & Sciences, Inc. (SSA+S) accepts applications beginning August 1st through December 1st of each year for eligible students entering sixth through eighth grade, for the following school year. For example, the application window for the 2020-2021 school year is August 1, 2019 through December 1, 2020.

If the number of applications received does not meet the maximum enrollment capacity of students for each grade level by December 1st, SSA+S will give sufficient public notice and extend the application deadline until capacity is met. If the number of applications received by December 1st exceeds the capacity of the grade level, all applicants will have an equal opportunity of being admitted through a random selection process in accordance with Florida Statute 1002.33, subsection (10), article (b).

**State Statute 1002.33, subsection (10), article (b), governing charter school enrollment policies; (b The charter school shall enroll an eligible student who submits a timely application, unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or building. In such case, all applicants shall have an equal chance of being admitted through a random selection process.

(d) A charter school may give enrollment preference to the following student populations:

1. Students who are siblings of a student enrolled in the charter school.

2. Students who are the children of a member of the governing board of the charter school.

3. Students who are the children of an employee of the charter school.

Enrollment offers are also contingent upon review of records and any special resources a student may require. With the appropriate documentation, enrollment preference may be given to siblings (brother/sister/same household) of students currently enrolled in the school, to the child(ren) of employees of the school, and to the child(ren) of current governing board members of SSA+S. Students who are enrolled and attend SSA+S currently, are not subject to the lottery process each year and do not need to reapply.

**Sarasota School of Arts and Sciences offers enrollment to all students that they can serve appropriately.  Review of discipline, attendance, and exceptional student education records may negate enrollment at our school based upon an inability to serve the student's needs.  Students whose records are in violation of our student contract, as supported by our Reassignment Form, and Charter will not be admitted.  Students that are expelled from a public school, are on a settlement agreement, or on a deferred expulsion will not be admitted to SSA+S during the duration of their expulsion.

Thank you for your interest in SSA+S!
