2017/18 School Year Open Enrollment
The Open Enrollment period for the 2017/18 school year is October 17-31, 2016. 
Applications received after the Open Enrollment period are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
All Sonoran Schools are public schools, sponsored by the Arizona State Board of Charter Schools and open to all students in Arizona who qualify to attend public schools, subject to available capacity. Sonoran Schools will admit all students, on a space-available basis, will not charge tuition, and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, ancestry, or athletic performance.

Level of Priority for incoming students
Re-enrolling students are given first priority for the slots available for the following year. Pursuant to A.R.S. 15-184(D)(2), the School will prioritize faculty, staff, and board member's children as well as siblings of current students and students who previously attended another school within the Sonoran network of schools ("Network").

Age restrictions
Incoming kindergarteners must be 5 years old by Sept. 1 of the year that they are entering. We conditionally accept late birthdays (Sep. 1-Dec. 31) based on child's readiness to attend school. First graders must be age 6 by Sept. 1 of the year that they are enrolling; we conditionally accept late birthdays (Sep. 1-Dec. 31) based on child's readiness to attend school).


  • The school will not enroll students over 19 years of age unless continuously enrolled in public schools and making satisfactory progress toward high school diploma.

Waiting List notification
Parent(s)/guardian(s) of a student on the waiting list will be notified immediately if space becomes available and will have one week (five business days) to reply and pay the activity fee. If the reply and payment are not received by the end of the one week (five business day) period, admission for that student is forfeited, and an admission notice will be mailed to the next student on the waiting list.

Sonoran Schools is a tuition-free organization for Arizona residents, with the exception of some full-day kindergarten programs.

Uniform requirements
All incoming students, upon acceptance of enrollment, must purchase uniform shirts. Please reference the Student Handbook for details.

All applicants are tested to establish appropriate class placement; all students are accepted regardless of their particular level.
