Enrollment / Lottery Information



    • Enrollment is open to incoming kindergarten-8th grade students for the 2021-2022 school year.
      • Kindergarten students must be 5 years old on September 1st, 2021 in order to be eligible for kindergarten enrollment.

    • A parent/guardian from each household MUST attend one Enrollment Orientation Meeting in order to be eligible for the admission lottery. These orientation meetings will further explain Discovery Peak’s learning structure and philosophy, review the expectations of both students and parents, and go over basic logistics of our school. Our goal through these orientation meetings is for parents/guardians to feel comfortable, confident, and well-informed about Discovery Peak prior to enrolling their child.

    • All orientation meetings will be held at Discovery Peak Charter School, 2880 Hurst Road, North Pole, Alaska.  Orientation dates will be March 3rd, March 16th, and April 1st. Updates will become available as we get closer to these dates. 
    • After attending an orientation meeting, your child(ren) will be eligible to enroll in the admission lottery.

    • The online application for the lottery will open January 2021 and will close April 2021. Applications are completed online through the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District’s Online Lottery Application Portal via the Student Information Systems Centralized Application Portal (CAP).  General information about the FNSBSD online lottery process can be found at https://www.k12northstar.org/lottery
    • Parents will be notified of their child’s lottery placement via email within 48 hours of the lottery drawing.

    • Parents of students who gain admission through the lottery draw will be required to confirm their commitment to enroll no later than April 21, 2021
