Academie Da Vinci prides itself in being a small school that devotes a great deal of time to each student and family. Because we are small and have a large number of applicants, we conduct an annual lottery to determine which students will be offered seats. All new families are encouraged to take the school tour (prior to lottery) and talk with the principal about the school philosophy and mission, and see our classes in session.
Please Note: Florida School Law requires each entering child must be at least 5 years of age by September 1st of that school year. Children with birthdays after September 1 must enroll for the following school year.
Tour Information *NOTE: Tours are temporarily suspended due to Covid.
Tours are conducted on an as needed basis. Please call to set up a tour, (727) 298-2778 *NOTE: Tours are temporarily suspended due to Covid.
Because the demand for Academie Da Vinci is greater than available seats, we annually conduct a computerized random lottery for families who register for the lottery between October 1, 2020 and January 8, 2021. The lottery is conducted January 11, 2021 and families are notified by email of their offered seat.
According to our charter with Pinellas County Schools, preference (available seats or, if no seats are available in a grade, the top waiting list position) is offered to these three groups:
- siblings - sibling(s) who attend Academie Da Vinci will be given preference;
- children of employees - given preference
- active military - any applicant who has a parent(s) or legal guardian(s) who are actively serving in any branch of the military are given preference; and
Families registering after January 8, 2021 are placed at the end of the waiting list for that grade on the date they register.
It is the policy of this school that there will be no discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups on the grounds of age, citizenship, color, disability, national origin, parental or marital status, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation in any educational programs, activities, or employment.
Pursuant to FL statue 1002.31 students residing in the district will have priority over those residing outside the district.
Equal Educational Opportunities
It is the policy of Academie Da Vinci Charter School for the Arts, Inc. to provide a free appropriate public education, for all children to achieve maximum intellectual growth and development without discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by local, state, or federal law, except where a bona fide requirement may lawfully disqualify an individual.
