Annual Lottery/Waitlist


You are required to sign up for the annual lottery every year. (Currently, enrolled students are guaranteed to stay enrolled in the same track for the following school year and are not required to enter into the annual lottery for their current track).
The Annual Lottery is held on the first Friday in March of every year. Due to the large number of names on our lists, our Lottery is done electronically using a random list-generating application. All students entered into the lottery are assigned a Lottery ID number. The random public lottery determines an applicant’s placement on our waitlist. Those who request to enter the lottery after the open enrollment deadline is added to the bottom of the lottery waitlist in their appropriate priority. Offers for openings are made in lottery placement/waitlist order until the spots are filled or the waitlist is exhausted.
The Lottery is for Blue and White Tracks only. A student may only be entered into ONE Lottery per year.
(A TK Red Track lottery will be held if we receive more than 20 inquiries). Please note: During a typical lottery year, we normally have the following openings.

Openings for Blue Track (full-time on-campus program):
Kindergarten: 52 - 5 days a week on campus
6th grade: 52
Openings for White Track (2 days on-campus program):
Kindergarten: 26 - 2 days a week on campus
6th grade: We will have openings if any currently enrolled White Track students are placed in Blue Track, then offers will be sent from the White Track lottery results.
Openings for TK:
Transitional Kindergarten: Starting in the 2023-24 school year, 20 Red Track (Homeschool supplemented with 2 half days a week on-campus)
Please note Santa Rosa Academy’s TK program is a Red Track homeschool program with 2 half days on campus with a teacher. All TK students do have priority in the following years' kindergarten Blue or White Track lottery. All TK students will be guaranteed a spot on Red Track Kindergarten.
The majority of placements will be from our staff, currently enrolled students, and siblings lists. The purpose of the lottery is to fill open spots and to determine our waitlist placement order for the upcoming school year.
Staff, Board Members, Currently Enrolled, Heritage, Siblings, Menifee Union School District, and General Public.
*Currently enrolled have priority over Siblings and the General Public.
**Important note about Heritage Students: A Heritage Student is identified as a student who has continuously attended Santa Rosa Academy since PRIOR TO the opening of the new campus or the 2013-14 school year. These students would have attended school at the Main Campus at MSJC, Santa Rosa Academy West, or the shopping center on Baxter Road in Wildomar. Heritage and Siblings need to be verified by Administration and Registrar. Board member students have priority after staff when they have served four years.
