Enrollment Information

Riverway Learning Community is a charter public school and is therefore open to all students. Importantly, we have unique programs that define who and what we are, so it is important that families not only want an alternative to the local district but specifically want the kind of education we provide.

General Enrollment and Application Information

All interested families are invited to submit an application for enrollment. Enrollment is limited and when spots are available they are filled on a first come first served basis (outside the Open Enrollment period...see below). Students not admitted due to space limitations are placed on a wait list.

Admissions and Lottery Policy can be found here.

Open Enrollment for 2021-2022


January 11 - February 26, 2021


All interested families are invited to submit an enrollment application during the open enrollment period - one for each child they wish to have attend Riverway. These are available at the school and on-line starting on January 13. Open enrollment ends February 28, and applications submitted by that date will be included in the lottery.

*Submission does not ensure placement.

Enrollment Meeting

All interested families are strongly encouraged to attend one of two enrollment meetings, either on February 16 or February 23. This meeting is approximately 1 hour long and culminates with a tour of the school. Time will be available for Q & A.

Observation Opportunities

These may be scheduled when submitting an application or after attending an enrollment meeting and last for 30-45 minutes.

Lottery - admission or wait-list

If a greater number of applications are received than space available in any given grade, families will be notified and a lottery will be held on March 3 at 10:00 am. This is a blind lottery and families are not required to be present during the lottery but are welcome to attend.

Pre-School Tuition Policy

During the 2021-2022 school year, there will be no tuition charged for preschool. All enrollment is free of charge. Once a student is enrolled in preschool, they can be guaranteed continual enrollment in subsequent school years.
