The open application period for the 2024-2025 school year will be conducted from October 1st through January 17th. 

How does enrollment work?

An enrollment application needs to be completed to place a prospective student on our waiting list. You may complete the application form online. 

Enrollment Policy

The following policy is used in determining the order in which prospective students are taken off the wait list. This ensures fair and equitable treatment of all those interested in enrolling at Academie Da Vinci. Our school will follow the enrollment calendar established by the Pinellas County School Board for the School Choice Program.

New Applicants – The application period is between October 1, 2023 and January 17, 2024 of the year prior to desired admission. All applications received by January 17th will be entered into a random lottery system. All prospective students who miss the January 17th application deadline will be added to the waiting list in the order in which the enrollment forms were received after the names of those in the lottery.

When seat availability numbers are known by the school, prospective students will be invited to fill the vacancies according to this policy. Parents or guardians will be given 24 hours to respond to the invitation. If a response is not received in that time it will be assumed that the student is no longer interested in enrolling and the vacancy will be given to a student further down the list.

Sibling Preference – Any student interested in enrolling in Academie Da Vinci who has a sibling already enrolled in the school shall be given preference. The enrollment form must be received by the school at any time during the open enrollment period.

Family Consideration – In the event that a family with multiple siblings is interested in enrolling for the same school year, family consideration will be given. Therefore, whenever possible, siblings not currently enrolled in the school shall be given preference.

Children of Employees Preference – Any student of an ADV employee shall be given preference.

Military Preference – Any student interested in enrolling in Academie Da Vinci who has a parent or guardian who is active in the military shall be given preference. 


Pursuant to FL statue 1002.31 students residing in the district will have priority over those residing outside the district. 

Academie Da Vinci will not discriminate during the student enrollment process.

Until accepted, applicants must re-apply each school year.
