Each year Hayden Canyon Charter has a limited number of openings for new students.

Students will be placed on the list according to the order they were drawn respective to their priority group. When a seat becomes available, the first student on the waiting list will be given the first opportunity to fill that seat. If a student or the student’s parent or guardian does not accept an offer of enrollment by the date designated, the student’s name will be removed from the list and the next eligible student will be offered the seat. Wait lists will not carry over from one year to the next.
