Lottery and Waitlist

C2E holds an enrollment lottery of all students who have submitted letters of interest.   Applications received after the lottery are added to the wait list. Open positions are filled from the wait list. We recommend submitting your Letter of Interest early.  Please remember offers and communications from Challenge to Excellence are done through email.  Keeping your email address up to date is very important. Letters of Interest must be turned in no later than September 30th in order to take advantage of our lottery.  If you miss our lottery deadline, it is still beneficial to submit a Letter of Interest and get on our wait list.

Deadlines and Offers

Our lottery deadline is September 30th.   To take advantage of our lottery you must have your Letter of Interest and Proof of Residency turned in by the deadline.  Letters of Interest cannot be processed without a current Proof of Residency (please see highlighted section on the Letter of Interest).

Challenge to Excellence will hold a lottery on the 15th of October which will place students on the appropriate year’s wait list.  Families may begin contacting the office beginning the second week in November to find out the placement of their child on the wait list.  All Letters of Interest that have been submitted after the lottery cutoff date will be time stamped and added to the wait-list in the order in which it is received.

We will begin to make offers via email in late November.  Please be sure that you have toured the school before an offer has been made as there will not be time to do so once an offer has been given. Please click here for the current school tour schedule and dates.

Additional Notes:

Guidance to parents wishing to enroll special needs students in our school can be seen here.

Offers are made through email only. Please be sure keep your email address up to date. If an offer is made and no response is received within the window given, an offer is made to the next student waiting.  If you are still interested in enrolling you will be required to submit a new Letter of Interest.

Sibling Status:

We believe in keeping families together.  We strive to offer to all siblings at the same time.  However, if that is not possible we recommend accepting any offer given.  This will move the remaining siblings to the top of the wait list (behind any other siblings waiting).  We will do our best to accept all family members at the same time.

It is not necessary to reapply each year:

Once a Letter of Interest has been submitted to Challenge to Excellence, you do not need to reapply every year unless you have declined an offer.  If you are not offered a position within the current year, your child will roll to the waitlist for the next school year (keeping their priority).
