The Admissions Process
MSA is a public school. It is open to any Minnesota student as a free public education. Registration is required. Enrollment is handled in accordance to the School Enrollment Procedures (PDF).
When can students register?
The Math and Science Academy had an open application period for the 2017-18 school year that began December 15, 2016 at 12:00 a.m. and ended February 1, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. All grade levels received more applicants than spaces available, and a lottery was conducted to determine admission for that grade shorty after registration ended.
Any student who applies after the deadline will be placed on the waiting list. For specific details on the current state of applications, please see our application page.
An application must be completed and submitted online for all prospective students in order to be considered. This requirement applies to sibling applicants. Preference will be given to siblings of am enrolled student. For more information please see the School Enrollment Procedures (PDF).
Is there a waiting list?
Yes, MSA has a waiting list. All students who are not accepted for entry are automatically placed on a waiting list in the order of their draw in the lottery. Students remain on this waiting list until accepted for enrollment or until parents have their names removed. Students on the waiting list will have to apply each year. According to Minnesota state statute, each year is a separate enrollment period. For more information please see the School Enrollment Procedures (PDF).
Siblings of enrolled students will receive preference for admission if an application is submitted by the deadline.
If more sibling applications are received than open spaces available at any grade level, a lottery will be conducted among all the applicants who met the deadline. Siblings who are not chosen will be placed on a waiting list and notified when a space becomes available.
For more information please see the School Enrollment Procedures (PDF).
Once the open application period begins, you can apply online by going to the apply online page.
Any questions regarding the application and enrollment should be directed to the main office at 651-578-7507.
