2017-18 Enrollment Process:

Open Enrollment Period

The Open Enrollment Period for the 2017-18 Academic Year runs from Tuesday, January 3, to Friday, February 10, 2017, at 5:00 PM. There is no advantage to turning in your application earlier rather than later during the open enrollment period. We welcome 2017-18 applications at any time, even after the end of the 2017-18 open enrollment period.

2017 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 Wednesday, February 15, 2017, at 6:00 PM 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

According to Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.10, Yinghua Academy offers preference to families with currently enrolled students at Yinghua Academy and to children of staff at Yinghua Academy. In order to get this preference, the parents must submit an application before the close of the open enrollment period. Preference is not given for any other reason.

Kindergarten Enrollment

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

Reception of Application

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

Yinghua Academy does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, status with regard to public assistance, disability, sexual orientation, age, nor any other protected class. The school district also makes reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities, special needs, and limited English proficiency.
