Admission Requirements

In order to receive an Initial Application form to be placed on the wait list, families are required to attend an Informational Meeting. ACA’s history, mission and vision, unique model, and requirements will be presented, and parents and students will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The Alliance Charter Academy is a school of choice. Students will be considered for admission without regard to ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, or achievement level. All students must reside within the state of Oregon as required by law. Admission will be by application.


If the number of pupils who wish to attend Alliance Charter Academy exceeds the school’s capacity, attendance shall be determined by a lottery process. Preference shall be extended first to students residing within Oregon City School District. Once a student is enrolled, they do not need to reapply in subsequent years. Preference will be given to siblings of enrolled students. If space permits, out of district students may apply. Positions on the waiting list will also be determined by lottery, and families on the list will be contacted when space becomes available.
