In order to enroll at Honey Creek, students must reside in the Washtenaw Intermediate School District Area.
Students who were enrolled in Honey Creek Community School at the end of the immediately preceding school year shall be allowed to re-enroll in Honey Creek in the following school year. Siblings of currently enrolled Honey Creek students have priority for admission. New students shall be considered for admission to Honey Creek on a first come, first served basis, unless there are more applications for enrollment than there are spaces available. In recent years there have routinely been more applicants than available spaces and admission has been through a random selection lottery.
The enrollment process begins when prospective parents fill out and submit the 2021-2022 application. The application is available December 1, 2020 at https://53709.schoolforms.org/ We encourage parents to view the website and attend one of our December or January Q and A zoom events with Al Waters, our school Director.
It is very important to Honey Creek Community School that parents understand our school to make an informed choice in deciding if Honey Creek is the best school for their child.
Open Enrollment Period
The application must be filled out and submitted on-line by March 1, 2021 to be eligible for the open enrollment lottery. Applications will be randomly pulled in a lottery to fill the openings at each grade level. Families will be notified of their acceptance status no later than March 15, 2021.
Applications will continue to be accepted after this date and spots will be offered if available or students will be placed on a wait list.
After admission to Honey Creek
Once admitted to Honey Creek, the child and parent(s) are encouraged to spend a morning (this may be virtual) in the classroom together with Honey Creek teachers, students and parents. This getting acquainted session helps to further the prospective enrollee family’s understanding of the Honey Creek philosophy and curriculum. The classroom orientation visit will be scheduled in the spring.
Families who are not granted immediate admission through the lottery are placed on a grade-level waiting list. Openings may occur later in the process – either before or after the start of the fall semester. When openings occur, Honey Creek administrators contact waitlisted families to offer them the opportunity to enroll. If you choose not to accept an offered classroom spot, you will be removed from the waitlist and will need to reapply for future consideration.
