How to Enroll
We are still accepting applications for grades K–10 for the 2014–2015 school year. Enrollment for grades 9 and 10 is now closed for first semester. We will begin approving for second semester on November 1, 2014 for a start date of January 12, 2015.
Please note that of our available seats, we are allowed to have no more than 500 non-prior public students. At this time, we are at capacity for non-prior public students, and will be offering seats as they become available from our waitlist.
ARVA has an enrollment cap and limited seats are available for students that were not enrolled in an Arkansas public school for the first three quarters of last school year (2013–2014). As such, we will be requiring a Verification of Enrollment form from the 2013–2014 School Year that proves eligibility for an open seat. This form will need to be completed by the Arkansas public school that your child attended last school year (2013–2014).
Kindergarten students must be five years old and first grade students must be six years old by August 1, 2014 in order to enroll.
Steps to Enroll
Enrolling your student is important—but it shouldn't be difficult. We've designed our enrollment process to provide you with the tools, resources and guidance you'll need, any time you need it.
1. Create an Account
The Parent Portal provides on-demand access to our online Application and Admissions Process, real-time alerts to help you stay on track, and quick links to important info.
2. Submit an Application
To submit an application, you'll provide us with basic information about your student and choose an available school.
3. Complete the Admissions Process
To complete the admissions process, you'll provide more detailed information about your student, submit necessary documentation and fulfill any additional requirements related to your student's enrollment.
