Application and Enrollment Process

Application and Enrollment Information for the 2022 - 2023 School Year

Thank you for your interest  in the Gulf Coast Academy of Science and Technology's  specialized middle school education program. The official enrollment window for the 2022-2023 school year has begun and will continue until January 1st, 2022. After January 1st, 2022, you will no longer be able to apply for the 2022-2023 school year until June 1st, 2022. Please click the button below for more information.

​SPECIAL NOTE: If you are applying for the CURRENT - 2021-2022 school year please be advised that we can only offer you waiting list status at this time. You will be contacted if a space becomes available. Please be sure to select the correct school year when applying. Given that we can only provide you with waiting-list status for the 6th or 7th Grade during the 2021-2022 school year, we encourage you to submit TWO pre-applications, one for the 2021-2022 school sear, and one for the NEXT 2022-2023 school year. Please note that you will need to use a separate e-mail address for each pre-application you submit. (PLEASE BE SURE TO MONITOR YOUR E-MAILS)

Since the number of applicants for a particular grade level may exceed the positions available, a random selection process (or lottery) will be used to determine enrollment. Students who were not initially selected for enrollment will be placed on a numbered waiting list and will be notified if a position becomes available.

The enrollment of students receiving ESE (exceptional student education) services will be provisional and subject to the final determination made by the IEP team. The IEP team must agree that the charter school is the best available placement option.
