Enrollment Information

Only enroll your student in the lottery for the campus at which you intend your student to attend. Enrolling at multiple campuses will not increase your chances of being accepted to the AAU campus of your choice.

The West Valley AAU campus may enroll up to 525 students in grades K-6. 

If the number of student applications exceeds the number of positions available at AAU, students will be randomly chosen to fill available positions; this process is referred to as a lottery. All applicants in the lottery pool will be considered, and a computerized lottery program will randomly select students. Every effort will be made to accept all siblings in an individual family, but this may not be possible due to the cap on class sizes and the lottery process. Siblings of students currently in the school will be given preference if openings become available.

Once you have submitted an application for your student(s) to attend AAU, your child’s application will be held in the lottery pool until a vacancy is available or the Open Enrollment period ends. The lottery will be held after each Open Enrollment period. Families will be notified via e-mail of their child’s acceptance into the school through the computerized lottery program. Families selected will be notified of the next steps in the registration process and the timeline they will need to follow. If you do not receive a notice of enrollment after you submit your application, please assume nothing has changed in regard to your student’s enrollment status or log in to the enrollment portal to check status.
