Enrollment Process


OPENING FALL 2022 - NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Apply for Lottery

NOTE: Optima Classical will continue to accept applications and will run the lottery if we need any students in any grade.

Apply for the Student Selection Lottery - GRADES 3-8

Step 1: Complete a Lottery Application

OCA is now accepting applications via SchoolMint. Florida law requires a random lottery when there are more student applicants than seats available in a particular grade.

 Complete the lottery application on SchoolMint

After creating your account, select the school year and then the school you are applying to attend.

NOTE: You will be notified of lottery results via the email and phone number provided during the application process.

Step 2: Receive an Offer to Register or Waitlist Status

The number of student seats available in each grade will determine how many are sent offers to register. If your student is selected for a seat, you will receive an offer to register. If your student is placed on a waitlist due to more applicants than seats available, you will be notified of waitlist status.

If You Received an Offer to Register...Move on to Step 3 

QUESTIONS: Please contact the registrar at registrar@optimaclassical.org if you have any issues or questions about the OCA enrollment process.
