Enrollment at Aurora Science & Tech is managed through an independently run lottery. Interested families will complete an online-only application, which is open from January 15-February 16.
If there are more applications submitted than seats available, a waitlist will be created. Applicants who submit their application after the application deadline will be added to the waitlist in order of priority.
Families that are placed at Aurora Science & Tech in the lottery will be notified of admission after the lottery is run and asked to confirm their intent to enroll.
Priorities exist within the randomized lottery. The priorities for admission are as follows, in order of priority:
- Siblings of current AST students
- Residents in the Aurora Public Schools (APS) district
- Residents not in the Aurora Public Schools district
