REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

This is the procedure for registration as indicated by the Saxon Hill School by-laws, Article III, Section 2. It is the policy of Saxon Hill School not to discriminate in its acceptance of enrollees as required and provided for in federal and state law (Saxon Hill School by-laws, Article III, Section 9).

Enrollment prioritization is as follows. Enrollment in classes which have more applicants than spaces will be determined by a lottery at each priority level.

  1. Students who are children of Saxon Hill School staff.
  2. Currently enrolled students repeating the same class.
  3. Currently enrolled students moving to a different class (e.g. 3-day to 4-day program).
  4. Students with currently enrolled siblings or sibling alumni.
  5. Children of a parent who attended Saxon Hill
  6. Students who are new to the school with no staff, sibling, or alumni relationship.

Classes will be filled in the following order: 4 day, 3 day , and 2 day. In a situation where a lottery is needed for new families and more than one application is submitted from the same family, if one applicant’s registration form is drawn, then that family will then be considered a Saxon Hill School member family. As such, the sibling(s) is (are) given priority over other new applicants.

Registration is conducted over a three-week period in January and February. Dates are voted on at the August full membership meeting. Families will indicate a first and second choice preference on their registration form. Forms may be mailed or delivered in person to either the designated site in the school building or to the Registrar and must be received by specified date. SHS will not be responsible for registration forms lost or delayed in the mail Lotteries, if necessary, shall be witnessed by at least two other board members. Registration fees are non-refundable (Article III, Section 3) once enrolled in the class.

WAIT LIST

The wait list will be started when the program is full. A family must contact the Registrar when the class is full and ask to be put on the wait list. If a family is offered a spot, then they have one of the following options:

  1. to take a spot in the class
  2. to decline the spot and be removed from the wait list
  3. to decline the spot and be placed at the bottom of the wait list

Families have 48 hours to make a decision regarding a spot in a class unless otherwise determined by the registrar. Families may place their enrolled or wait-listed child on one additional program waiting list with no additional registration fee.
