Non-discrimination Statement

Lumen Scholar Institute (the School) is a public charter school open to all Utah students without discrimination and on the same basis as other public schools. The School will consider the application of any student who submits a timely application and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, proficiency in English, or national origin. Admissions, enrollment, and transfer procedures comply with Utah Code 53A-1a-505 which governs such processes in the State of Utah. 

Open Enrollment Policy

Open enrollment for each new school year begins in the month of January of each current school year according to the posted calendar. The School enrolls current students first for any new school year, and then conducts a lottery when the number of students making application to the school exceeds the enrollment capacity in any grade, class, or program within the school. 

During the lottery, the school begins enrolling students in the highest grade that has open seats, working its way to the younger grades. As students are accepted, sibling applicants are accepted as well if their are openings in their particular grade. The process continues until the school's enrollment cap of 550 is reached or until all grades with openings have been accepted.

Wait List

Any student who does not get offered a seat during the lottery will be placed on a wait list.  

After the Open Enrollment period closes and the lottery is conducted, the school will continue to accept students and they will be placed on a wait list in the order they are received. 

Wait lists are not carried over from one year to the next. Students interested in enrolling must apply annually.

Preferential Enrollment

While the lottery selects students at random, preference is given to the following individuals in any lottery consistent with applicable state laws.

Order of Preference

  1. Children of founding parents
  2. Children of faculty and staff
  3. Children of members of the Board of Trustees
  4. Siblings of currently enrolled students

Sibling preference is granted beginning with the highest available grade and moving down. If preference is granted to a sibling, that student is placed in the next available slot on the appropriate grade list following the order of preference above. Sibling preference is in place only while the first-placed student remains enrolled. If the first-placed student, who qualified siblings for preferential enrollment is withdrawn before October 1, any siblings will lose preferential status and move back into their place in the lottery.
