Lottery Results

Here are the 2015-2016 LOTTERY RESULTS.

Clicking on the link will take you to the file that shows the results of the lottery held on Monday, April 20, 2015. The various class lists (see the tabs at the bottom to navigate through the different grades) will show the various levels of priorities starting at Priority 3 through 5. We did not have any students of Governing Board Members or Staff (Priority 2) participate in the lottery for next school year. Currently enrolled students (Priority 1) were exempt from the lottery according to our Admissions Policy. This is why all of the lists start at Priority 3.

We will be inviting students according to their priority levels. The list does not guarantee automatic enrollment at VSAS. Invitations are based on the number of available seats in the different grade levels.

Letters will be sent out electronically in early May to invite students in those grades where spaces are available. We will work with parents and releasing schools regarding the transfers so that it facilitates a smooth transition between schools. We realize that in most cases, the transition may need to wait until next school year.

Please be sure to keep the office updated regarding any changes in contact information as there are often changes in enrollment during the summer months. Our office number is 985-9800. If there are any other questions, please feel free to let us know.
