2018-19 Enrollment Process:

Open Enrollment Period: The Open Enrollment Period for the 2018-19 Academic Year runs from Wednesday, January 3, to Friday, February 9, 2018, at 5:00 PM. There is no advantage to turning in your 2018-19 application earlier rather than later during the 2018 open enrollment period.

2018 Lottery: If we receive more applications than we can accommodate in any grade, we will hold a lottery for those grades during a public meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the Yinghua cafeteria. Based on the lottery, some applicants will be offered the opportunity to enroll. The other applicants will be put on a waiting list. After the close of the Open Enrollment Period, Yinghua Academy will continue to accept applications for all grades. If there is no space available in a specific grade, the prospective student will be put on a waiting list.

Enrollment Preference: In accordance with Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.10, Yinghua Academy offers enrollment preference to families with currently enrolled students at Yinghua Academy and to children of staff at Yinghua Academy. Preference is not given for any other reason. To receive enrollment preference for a younger sibling of a current Yinghua student who will enter kindergarten during the upcoming school year, the family must submit an application before the close of the open enrollment period.

Kindergarten Enrollment: Prospective students entering kindergarten must be 5 years old on or before September 1st of the year in which they start kindergarten.

Receipt of Application: Applications must be received in person or via postal mail. Applications received via email or fax will not be accepted.
