Lottery Application

Welcome prospective Dragons! Admission to South Valley Academy is determined by random electronic lottery. If you would like your student to be included in this lottery, please fill out and submit an application 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 of your student'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.
