Ocean Academy Charter School is accepting applications for the 2020-21 School Year. There are approximately 60 openings for Kindergarten and there may be a few openings in Grades First through Fifth.
All Kindergarten Students must be 5 years old before December 31, 2020! Priority admission is given to Lakewood residents and siblings of current students; however, students from other communities are welcomed to apply. Students are accepted on a "first-come-first-served basis." So it is very important to get your application in as soon as possible.
Completed applications may be mailed to or delivered in person to:
Ocean Academy Charter School, 678 5th Street, Lakewood, NJ 08701
In the event that there are more applications received than spaces available, a random lottery drawing will be conducted from all applications received by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, February 26th. The Lottery drawing will be held at 7:00 pm at an open public meeting on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020. Those students not selected for enrollment at the time of the lottery drawing will be placed on a waiting list. In the event that a student chosen from the lottery is unable to attend, available spaces will be filled first from the names on the waiting list. The waiting list will remain active throughout the 2020-21 school year. If openings become available during the school year, those open spaces will be filled first from the names on the waiting list.
Once a child is admitted as a student to Ocean Academy Charter School, his/her enrollment is continuous from year to year!
All students who will be entering grades K – 5 are eligible to submit an application. Ocean Academy Charter School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, creed, religion, or national origin. Admission to Ocean Academy Charter School is not based on intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, status as a handicapped person, proficiency in the English language, or any other basis that would be considered discriminatory.
