Applying to Equipo Academy

Applying to

Equipo Academy

LOTTERY OVERVIEW

Equipo Academy is a college-preparatory public charter school sponsored by the State Public Charter School Authority. While Equipo Academy is a tuition-free public school open to all students in Clark County, the school is not affiliated with the Clark County School District and maintains a separate application and enrollment process from any district schools. As a rigorous college preparatory school, the Equipo Academy Governing Body prepares lottery guidelines to manage enrollment cycles where there may be greater interest in the school than the school has the capacity to serve. Pursuant to NRS 386.580, if the number of students applying for a specific grade at Equipo Academy should exceed the number of seats available in that grade, then applications will be chosen through a random lottery procedure. The goals of the Equipo Academy application, lottery, and enrollment process are accessibility, fairness, and efficiency.

STUDENTS GIVEN PRIORITY IN THE EQUIPO ACADEMY LOTTERY

Equipo Academy is a free, college-prep public school open to all students in East Las Vegas regardless of language spoken, FRL status, past academic performance, or any special needs. We welcome all students and we believe every student can meet our highest expectations.

You may apply for either by clicking “Apply” below. If you have questions or need assistance, you can message us in the chat below.

When completing an application during a lottery window, the application will ask information regarding an applying student’s siblings, primary residence, and free- and reduced-price lunch eligibility. Each of these questions corresponds to a group given priority in our annual lottery.

(PRIORITY GROUP 1) Siblings of current students

(PRIORITY GROUP 2) Students living within a two-mile radius of Equipo Academy

(PRIORITY GROUP 3) Students eligible for free- or reduced-price lunch programs shall receive priority in that order in any lottery window following the Equipo Academy charter. 

Answering any question related to these priorities is optional and may increase, though does not guarantee, your child’s chance of admission.
