What is Enroll Indy?
Enroll Indy is a unified enrollment system that streamlines the application process for Indianapolis students and their families. Families who would like to apply should use the Enroll Indy OneMatch system to fill out an application.
When will applications be accepted?
Applications are accepted year round. The first enrollment window will run from November 1st through January 31st. The second enrollment round runs from February 1st through April 30th. Late enrollment begins May 1st. Families will apply online at enrollindy.org/apply. The link is also provided on our website or you may go directly to the Enroll Indy website. No paper applications will be available, but families who do not have access to a computer or a mobile device may come to the school office and use the application computers from 9am-3pm Monday-Friday. To apply outside of these hours, please call the school office to make an appointment.
How will the application process work?
When filling out the application, a family will create a profile which will show schools to which you can apply. Families may list up to ten schools they are willing to attend, although families may only list one or two if that is their preference. We recommend listing our school as #1 to ensure that you get a spot.
What happens if I do not match to my choice?
If you do not match to one of your choices, you will default to your neighborhood or boundary school. If you are unsatisfied with that match, you may reapply during the second or third round, provided there are spaces still available.
What steps will I need to take to secure my spot?
Once you are accepted, you will receive information on how to register your child through the school’s registration system. Failure to complete registration within 30 days, will result in your losing the spot for your child.
