Lottery and Enrollment Application
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:
Enrollment Update, May 1, 2020:
The 2020-2021 application window is now closed. Applications submitted after the deadline will be added to the bottom of the appropriate waiting list. Our lottery was completed during the week of April 27th, 2020. Families will be notified of their status on a acceptance or wait list by mail beginning on Friday, May 1st. Those who have received an acceptance letter must fill in the New Student Information form to continue the enrollment process.
- Spaces in grades 7-12 are extremely limited. We are not accepting applications for 12th grade at this time. Open spaces are filled as our current students advance, and 8th grade students are automatically promoted from SVA Middle School to the High School.
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.
