The Founding Family Advantage

Apex Community School will fill its enrollment via a lottery per federal regulation.  However, up to 20% of the initial student population can be granted to "Founding Families" via priority enrollment.  Based on an initial enrollment of 500 students, this means that Apex will open with the availability of 100 slots designated for children of Founding Families.

A Founding Family is defined as a family that provides at least 60 hours of approved volunteer service toward the establishment of Apex, as well as the family of any member of the Board of Directors of Apex Community School..  For the first year of enrollment of the school, approved volunteer hours must be served prior to February 15, 2018.

The Board of Apex has approved that a section be added to the Letter of Interest allowing a place to indicate whether or not someone referred them to the school. If the individual named as the referring party has indicated a desire to pursue Founding Family Status, they will earn two hours for each Letter of Interest received.  This is only in effect through September 1, 2017 and only 30 of the required 60 hours can be earned in this manner.
