Enrollment & Registration at OPA

Ogden Preparatory Academy (OPA) is an open enrollment institution that uses a Lottery System. Even if OPA has available seats right now, all new applicants start enrollment by entering the Lottery. There are two steps in the OPA Enrollment process:

  1. Application/Lottery Process
  2. Registration
    • New Student Registration
    • Current Student Re-Enrollment
    • Fee Waiver Acknowledgement

Application/Lottery Process

OPA provides applicants with an easy, online registration system.  The first step is to enter the Lottery; this is required even if there are seats currently available.

To apply for the Lottery, applicants can visit the OPA Lottery Application and fill out the online application for each potential student.  Then, the OPA Lottery System randomly selects applicants as space becomes available.  The lottery takes into consideration sibling, staff, and board member priorities when determining the selection.  Enroll in OPA charter school.

Applicants must apply each year.  Applications DO NOT roll over to the next school year if an applicant is not accepted.

OPA encourages any interested families to apply for the lottery and begin the enrollment process as soon as possible, even if the available seats are shown as “Zero” for the grade level(s) you desire. Seats frequently open up during the year and the lottery is pulled as needed. Applying now will ensure your children’s name is in the lottery the next time it is pulled.

New Student Registration

Once an applicant is selected for enrollment with the OPA Lottery System, they have 10 days to accept and register their student. OPA uses Aspire for registration and management of student data. Accepted applicants can register by visiting The Ogden Preparatory Academy Registration Website.

Student records must be delivered to the Registrars prior the students arrival at Ogden Preparatory Academy.  Below is Registrar information:

Current Student Re-Enrollment

Current students can visit The Ogden Preparatory Academy Registration Website to re-enroll for the upcoming year.  Re-Enrollment occurs every year and must be completed within the re-enrollment window to retain a seat with the school.  Existing students’ families will receive information each year regarding the window for re-enrollment.

Procedure for Transfer

Transfers can happen at any time before or during the school year. School officials appreciate as much notice as possible; however, transfers can be processed same day.

  • Contact the current school and notify of intent to transfer.
  • Enroll in receiving school.
  • The receiving school will send a records request to the current school.
  • Parent/guardian will sign a transfer form with the current and receiving form.

The OPA transfer form is student specific. Any parent or guardian choosing to transfer their student from OPA, should contact a school secretary to initiate the process.  Enroll in OPA charter school.

Half Day Kindergarten Option

Ogden Preparatory Academy provides a full-day Kindergarten experience for students who are five years old prior to September 1 of the school year. Full-day Kindergarten follows the same calendar and time schedule as all other OPA Elementary students. Full-day Kindergarten offers a full Kindergarten curriculum.

Families have the option of choosing a half-day Kindergarten option. Half-day Kindergarten is from 8:05 am to 11:00 am daily. Half-day Kindergarten offers the minimum Kindergarten core requirements.

Upon acceptance for OPA Kindergarten, the family will receive a form to select their scheduling choice.
