Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.
Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.
Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”
Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.
Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.
After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.
Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.
… and that’s it!
Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.
#1 – IS THERE ALWAYS A LOTTERY?
Not always, but often.
Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.
#2 – I WAS SELECTED FOR ENROLLMENT –
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NEXT?
Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.
After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!
(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)
#3 – I WAS PLACED ON A WAITLIST –
IS THERE ANY CHANCE I WILL GET TO ATTEND?
Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:
- A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
- A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
- A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
- We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
- One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
Reach out to us on Let’s Talk to let us know how we can help!
The goal of these camps is to provide an opportunity for all the students of Harmony Charter Schools to get exposed to the world of software development & pre-medical biology curriculum.
Review the listing of all the camps below – pay attention to the timing and pre-requisites. You can also visit the Camp Descriptions tab to see the detailed descriptions, setup details, and sample camp agendas. When a camp has a pre-requisite, We do not recommend taking a camp & its pre-requisite camp together – you can take the pre-requisite camp now, take the second camp in the next break. Also, after completing the camps for the camper’s grade level, it is OK to sign up for the higher grades’ camps if the camper feels confident to advance and try them out. There is no approval needed to do so. Also, since these camps are fast-paced & it is easy to forget the details after a few months, some campers may find it useful to repeat the camps, even the ones for lower grade levels. There is no need to race to reach the top – we prefer each student to progress at his/her own pace & enjoy the camp content.
We will use a Google form utd.link/harmony-reg to complete the registration (The registration site will be closed on Monday, March 8th). As part of the registration, you need to visit UTD payment site utd.link/pay to pay the camp fees ($10 for one camp & $20 for two camps). Once you get the confirmation email from the Google form, your registration is complete! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any issues.
Due to the deep discounted fees, all the camp fee payments are non-refundable. However, you can transfer to another camp for FREE. You can click on a link in the confirmation email to change your camps if you change your mind – you can also email email@example.com. If you completed the registration for one camp first & decided to add a second camp later, make a new registration.
Morning Camps for Grades 2-5 (10 am – 12 noon)
