Hartridge follows a controlled enrollment plan. The application for 2023 2024 waiting pool is currently located below and on our Home page. When the number of applicants we receive for a grade/class/program exceeds the number of openings we have, a random drawing is held - first from those who apply during our open enrollment period and then the remaining applicants in the waiting pool. Applications are discarded at the end of each school year for the current school year. Enrollment applications received outside of the announced open enrollment are not in the same waiting pool. Those received timely are served first.
Hartridge Academy has a nondiscrimination policy and is an equal opportunity school for students and employees. Hartridge does not racially discriminate in any way including with respect to students, employees, or applicants for enrollment or employment.
