High school students must also be able to demonstrate completion of the eighth grade through official transcript or homeschool portfolios.

What information is required for enrollment?

We are a school of choice, so enrollment documents include a District Release Form (sometimes called a “Choice Form”), which is requested through your resident school district.

Utility bill (gas, water, cable, electric, phone land line).

What if my child is behind on credits or failing classes?

ISWA specializes in addressing the needs of struggling students. Beginning with your child’s teacher, there are several avenues of support at ISWA. The ISWA team proactively works with students and Learning Coaches to provide timely intervention when students are falling behind.

In collaboration with the student and Learning Coach, we develop a high school and beyond plan for each student in grades 8–12 to ensure students have a roadmap to success that’s specific to them.

Can students enroll and begin classes at any time of the year?

ISWA offers enrollment opportunities throughout the year. Elementary and middle school students are on a semester calendar, while high school students are on a trimester calendar.

Students can submit an enrollment application anytime during the year. Once approved, they can begin attending classes at the next scheduled start date. These start dates vary by grade level. Students should remain enrolled in their current school until their start date at ISWA to avoid attendance and truancy issues in the state of Washington.

What if my child has been expelled?

We will review each case based on records from your current or former school district. As a Washington public school, we may honor current expulsions from another district.
