New Dawn Holds Basketball Tryouts!
The pandemic hiatus is finally over for our basketball team! Please see highlights of our tryouts in October 2022.
Applying for New Dawn Charter School is easy, but please read the instructions carefully. As per the approved charter application, New Dawn Charter High School is a transfer school and thus does not accept students coming out of 8th grade. Students must have attended at least one other high school and be between the ages of 15 and 21.
New Dawn has a rolling application period and we accept applications 12 months out of the year for admission in September and February. However, those students who apply by April 1st will be included in a lottery and if picked, will be guaranteed enrollment in the following September. To ensure access to transfer students, students may complete the lottery application for enrollment in February. These students will be added to the wait list and will be enrolled if there is available space. Finally, New Dawn has two lotteries as approved in the charter application. One lottery is for those students with 0 to 10 credits and the other lottery is for students with 11 or more credits.
If you would like more information about our school and enrollment process, please fill out the Enrollment Interest form to the right and a staff member will reach out to you to answer any questions you may have and set up an appointment.
Admitted students are also required to complete and submit the following as part of the enrollment process:
Once admitted to New Dawn Charter High School, students must provide transcripts from their previous academic institutions. New Dawn then reviews these transcripts and determines placement in classes based on the number of accumulated credits and classes needed for graduation. At New Dawn students are “ungraded” in the sense that they are able to take the classes necessary for them to graduate and this is not based on what “grade” the student is in. The chart below is simply for placement into the special programs (intensive 9th grade, Internship, or Bridge to Careers). New Dawn officials often contact students’ transferring schools with questions regarding their transcripts.
Students also take a series of assessments during orientation that help New Dawn staff determine grade and classroom placement.
Whenever possible, incoming students’ report cards and/or progress reports are reviewed for course placement and credit. If a student has made satisfactory progress at his/her transferring school in a course, then he/she may be able to get full credit for the equivalent course at New Dawn, given that he/she completes all stated requirements by the end of the term. The degree of partial credit granted hinges on consultations between the Principal and respective instructors.
New Dawn complies with all confidentiality laws protecting the privacy of its students and their families. Information regarding a student’s progress will be shared only with parents or guardians, appropriate members of the school’s faculty and staff, and any professional consultants retained for the purpose of measuring and/or improving instructional quality. When information regarding student performance is made public, it will be presented in such a way as to avoid the identification of specific, individual students.
