Prior to being considered for enrollment into ACC ECHS, students must complete and submit the Admission Packet to their Guidance Counselor. Incomplete packets will not be considered for enrollment.
Angelina County Cooperative Early College High School (ACC ECHS) will advertise the open application period for all grades in November of the year preceding enrollment. All applications for grade levels oversubscribed at the end of the open application period will be subject to a lottery. The School will publicize and hold such lotteries in public.
Applications received after the open application period will be placed at the end of the waiting list after the lottery has concluded. If not oversubscribed, ACC ECHS will admit all students who apply within the open application period, and will add additional students as applications are received in the order they are received.
When a lottery is needed, it shall be public; the date and location will be advertised in advance. At that time, the ACC ECHS Director, the Superintendents of each participating school district, along with members of each District’s School Board, shall be in attendance.
The lottery will be conducted for oversubscribed grade levels. Each application will be placed in a separate sealed envelope, by grade level, to be drawn from a box one at a time. As each envelope is drawn, each one shall be assigned a number, in rank order, which shall become the applicant’s sequence ranking for enrollment. Further, these numbers shall be used to constitute the waiting list for oversubscribed grades. All activity of the lottery shall be recorded and witnessed.
Parents of participating applicants will be sent letters of acceptance or non-acceptance in a timely manner following the conclusion of the lottery. Successful applicants will receive directions and deadlines relative to registration and attendance in the Summer Bridge Program.
