Enrollment Procedure

ADS is a tuition-free charter school. When we have more applications than spaces, available spaces are filled through a random lottery each April for the upcoming school year. Siblings of currently enrolled students have priority.

We recommend the following procedure:
  • Familiarize yourself with the website
  • Come on a tour of the school (October - May).
  • Read the Parent Handbook
  • Fill out an admission application:

  • The lottery is conducted the first business day of April for the upcoming school year. Parents will receive an email offering enrollment as spots become available. You are welcome and encouraged to apply after April! Applicants will receive an email as spots become available. 
  • Once you accept a spot, please submit an enrollment form and copies/pictures of your child’s birth certificate, social security card, and immunization records.
Austin Discovery School does not discriminate in admissions based on gender, national origin, citizenship status, ethnicity, religion, disability, or the district the child would otherwise attend.
