Parent Information

The Elgin Math and Science Academy Charter School will open its doors on August 15, 2018 for our students in Kindergarten through Third grade. Because we are a charter school, anyone in District U-46 can apply (according to grade level). Students for the 2018/2019 school year have been selected by a blind, public lottery that took place on April 11, 2018.

Each year, EMSA will add a grade level until we reach 8th grade — for example: the 2018/2019 3rd grade students will move up to 4th grade in 2019/2020, then on to 5th grade in 2020/2021. If you student is selected through the lottery to attend, they will be an EMSA student through 8th grade.

Did you miss the lottery deadline? You can still join the 2018/2019 K – 3 wait list.
