How does the lottery work?
Each school year we use a lottery system for enrollment of new students. January through March is our Open Enrollment period where families new to OACS can be placed on the lottery list for the upcoming school year. The following priority order is used in the lottery: Oakland siblings, Oakland residents, Non-Oakland OACS siblings, Town of Oakland employees, Oakland ASP-VPK, Non-Oakland Orange/Lake County residents, and other Florida residents.
The lottery is held early April and by mid-April all families will be contacted via email with the results. Children in the lottery will either be offered an enrollment opportunity or issued a wait list number. Our wait list stays active throughout the school year and does not roll over from year to year. After the lottery window closes you may email our registrar to be placed on the wait list.
Based on past enrollment trends, we anticipate having the following seats available per grade level at the time of the lottery:
90 in Kindergarten, and in Grades 1 through 5, 1 to 3 seats per grade level. Current school capacity is 528 students.
Lottery and enrollment questions should be directed to our registrar, Donna Bailey, or at 407-877-2039 ext. 2501.
