2020-2021 Lottery Information
There were seats available in each grade level for the 2020 lottery at Ivy Preparatory Academy at Kirkwood. Seat availability was determined by the number of seats that were vacated by previous families and/or adding additional classes in a given grade level.
The drawing was conducted using Lotterease. Per the terms of Ivy Prep’s charter, lottery preference is given first to siblings of currently enrolled Ivy Prep scholars as well as children of Ivy Prep employees. A lottery participant with a sibling who was admitted during the lottery process will be moved to the top of the Wait List in her respective grade.
Note: Ivy Prep Kirkwood’s attendance zone is for families eligible for Atlanta Public Schools and DeKalb County Schools. Applications submitted by families eligible for any other school district will not be considered in the lottery.
