Enrollment & Registration at OPA

Ogden Preparatory Academy (OPA) is an open enrollment institution that uses a Lottery System.  There are two steps in the OPA Enrollment process:

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

Application/Lottery Process

OPA provides applicants with an easy, online registration system.  To apply for the Lottery, applicants can visit apply.ogdenprep.org, create an account, and fill out the online application for each potential student.  The OPA Lottery System randomly selects applicants and places them in a “seat” in the applied grade level.  The lottery takes into consideration sibling, staff, and board member priorities when determining the selection.  For more information about the Lottery System please visit apply.ogdenprep.org.  Applicants must apply each year.  Applications DO NOT roll over to the next school year if an applicant is not accepted.

New Student Registration

Once an applicant is selected and placed in a seat with the OPA Lottery System, they have 10 days to accept the seat.  If the seat is not accepted within the 10 days, the application is denied and the next applicant on the waitlist is placed in the seat.

Once the applicant accepts the seat, they must register to attend Ogden Preparatory Academy.  OPA uses the Utah State Board of Education’s Student Information System, Aspire, for registration and to manage student data.   Accepted applicants can register for the school year for which they were accepted by visiting The Ogden Preparatory Academy Registration Website.

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.
