Step Three:

Soon after the regular application period ends on January 28th, you’ll be notified of your enrollment status. If there are more applicants than available enrollment placements, Maine Charter law states that we must proceed with a random lottery.

If a lottery is necessary, it will be held at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at Baxter Academy, 185 Lancaster ST, Portland ME 04101.

The random lottery will determine enrollment and waitlist status for all students who have completed the initial application process.

Step Four: 

Students who are offered enrollment at Baxter will have fourteen (14) days to secure their space by submitting a signed Commitment to Enroll form. If Baxter has not received the Commitment to Enroll form after fourteen (14) days, the placement will be released to the next prospective student on the waitlist. Once our Student Services Coordinator receives this form, your spot at Baxter will be secure. You always have the option to choose to relinquish your spot.

Any student applying after Tuesday, January 28, 2020 pm for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be placed on the waitlist according to timestamp.
