Apply for Enrollment at ECS

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you review the Admissions Process webpage for the timeline, criteria, required documentation, and steps for enrollment BEFORE starting an online application.  

New Student Online Application Process

Step 1:  Submit Online Application

All applicants must submit an online application at the link below. Upon submission of application, supporting documents, and online payment of the Application Fee, the Admissions Department will notify the parent/guardian of next steps including if space is available in the desired grade level or if there is a wait pool.

During the summer, applicants are encouraged to submit applications as soon as possible to ensure adequate time for the entire admission process, especially if a placement assessment (for grades 1-12) is deemed necessary. Deadlines apply for assessment sessions and may not be available close to the beginning of a new school year.

Step 2: Review of School Records & Assessments

For incoming 1st-12th grade students, parents must provide a Records Request Form to the previous school. When students apply to ECS from another school whose standardized assessments differ from ours or from non-state accredited institutions such as homeschool, they will be required to meet minimum placement testing requirements in both Math and ELA for entrance into the desired grade level.

For high school students, we make every effort when possible to award credit for homeschool classes or out-of state classes that are in line with IDOE course requirements. Letter grades from homeschool will not be included in the calculation of ECHS grade point averages.

Step 3:  New Student Interview with Principal

After review of the full application and records, the Admissions Committee will decide to schedule an interview with the principal for all students of families who would be new to ECS. The applicant and at least one parent/guardian will attend.

For current ECS families enrolling siblings, interviews will be scheduled for new 1st-12th grade students. An interview is only required for PS/PK/K students who are siblings of current families when the new student has special circumstances such as resource support needs.

Refer to the Admission Process page for details explaining the rest of the admission process.
