SLCSE is a free, public school, open to all Utah residents.
Applicants for the Salt Lake Center for Science Education must fill out an application form, available online or in hard copy. Applications to SLCSE are due by February 21st, 2020. Applications may be sent electronically, via mail, or hand delivered. An application will not be considered complete until such notice has been received. In the event that the school does not meet enrollment goals the period for accepting applications may be extended.
After February 21st we will conduct a lottery to select students to fill available spaces in 8th through 12th grades. Letters will be sent to all applicants by mid-March letting them know the results. Students not admitted at this time may elect to remain in the pool for spots that may become open at a later date. Students applying for grades beyond 9th will need to submit a copy of their current transcript to be reviewed to determine if our course offerings will meet their individual needs.
Students that are enrolled in SLCSE will be automatically enrolled for subsequent years unless written notification is received by the school indicating their desire to withdraw.
- All eligible students who submit a timely application will be admitted, unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the specific grade level.
- If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the specific grade level, then students shall be selected, by lottery, on a random basis except that the school will give preference to:
- siblings of students already admitted to or attending the school;
- a student of an SLCSE teacher or founder
Students entering grades 8 through 12 will be admitted if space is available. If there are more applications than spaces available ,applicants will be selected by lottery, as described above.
