Enroll Today & Choose LEAP Academy as Your School
LEAP Academy provides an open and transparent enrollment process to ensure that every family have a fair and equitable opportunity to apply and enroll.
Enrollment at LEAP is conducted in four tiers:
- Tier 1: Continuing students are the first priority. Parents who wish to have their children continue at LEAP, are guaranteed a seat.
- Tier 2: LEAP is family school and therefore provides second priority to siblings of existing students.As a family, we work hard to ensure that all of your children can attend LEAP, so they can stay together on their academic journey.
- Tier 3: LEAP focuses on Camden City families and provides preference for families that reside in the City of Camden.
- Tier 4: Once all seats are provided to families in Tier 1-3, the opportunity is offered to families that reside outside the city for enrollment.
- The Public Lottery: When there are more applicants than seats available on any given grade, a Lottery is held to randomly select students for vacant seats. Families are ranked in the order of selection. The Lottery is current through the entire school year. Every year, the school establishes a new lottery.
