New Students

Admission to South Valley Academy is determined by random electronic lottery. If you would like your child to be included in this lottery, please fill out and submit an application. English and Spanish versions of the application can be picked up at our main office or downloaded using the links below. 

Please be advised that the lottery does not guarantee admission. Students will be enrolled by the order in which their names are drawn, based on the number of open spaces. After the lottery, SVA staff will notify you, by mail, of your child's status on either the enrollment or waiting lists. Students who are not enrolled following the lottery are placed on a waiting list, with newly opened spaces awarded in continuing lottery draw order.

Student Enrollment Applications and Policy:
The 2017-2018 application window is now open. Applications can be picked up at our main office or downloaded below.

Enrollment Update, April / May 2017:
SVA's 2017-2018 lottery has been completed. Students who have been accepted have been notified by mail. If you would still like to apply, you may submit an application by e-mail or in person. Applications received at this time will be automatically added to the end of the appropriate waiting list.

  • Spaces in grades 7-12 are extremely limited. Open spaces are filled as our current students advance, and 8th Grade students are automatically promoted from SVA Middle School to the High School.
  • SVA Middle School has enrolled approximately 95 new 6th Grade students for 2017-2018.
  • A student who was on the 2016-2017 waiting list must have a 2017-2018 application on file by the deadline in order to retain his or her place.

Sibling Enrollment Policy, HS/MS:
If space permits, siblings (brothers or sisters) of current students are automatically accepted but must have a current application on file by the deadline. For enrollment purposes, cousins are not considered siblings.

If you have any questions about the application or waiting list process, please call our main office at 505-452-3132.



Submit your completed application at the main office, by mail, or e-mail.
