Each step is described below.
Step 1: Complete a Lottery Application
SJCA accepts applications via SchoolMint certain times of the year. Florida law requires a random lottery when there are more student applicants than seats available in a particular grade.
You will be notified of lottery results via the email and phone number provided.
Step 2: Receive an Offer to Register or Waitlist Status
The number of student seats available in each grade will determine how many are sent offers to register. if your student is selected for a seat, you will receive an offer to register. If your student is placed on a waitlist due to more applicants than seats available, you will be notified of waitlist status.
Step 3: Accept Offer to Register
When you receive the offer to register, you will have seven days to accept the offer to let us know you plan to complete the registration process. To accept the offer, follow the instructions in the email or text received from SchoolMint.
Step 4: Complete Registration
You will have 14 calendar days from the date you accept the offer to register to complete the registration process through SchoolMint. SJCA has a paperless registration process, so all documents will need to be uploaded using the SchoolMint instructions provided. Families who do not complete the registration process by the due date will lose their student's seat; that seat will be turned over to the next student on the waiting list.
