The lottery for our middle school and high school are held in April of each year. Students are given a preference in the lottery if they are an English Language Learner living in the Community School District in which our school is located—District 6. Applying siblings of students enrolled in Inwood Academy are also given preference for a seat. There is no cost to submit an application or attend Inwood Academy—we are a free public charter school.


The 2017–18 school-year application lottery is closed.

Check back later in 2017 or early 2018 for the 2018–19 lottery instructions and dates.

Open house dates will be posted here on our website in late 2017.
