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 has an open application period for the 2018-19 school year that begins December 15, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. and ends February 1, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. All grade levels that receive more applicants than spaces available will have a lottery conducted to determine admission for that grade shorty after registration ends. 

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).

Sibling Preference

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).
