Santa Rosa Academy announces lottery date change

MENIFEE – The Santa Rosa Academy annual lottery date has been changed. The school’s goal is to hold the lottery approximately 18 months before the start of school.

By holding the lottery early, the academy will be able to incorporate new programs that will support the youngest students before entry into transitional kindergarten and kindergarten. Holding the lottery earlier also allows for several parent training days, as Santa Rosa Academy will provide parents with information on early childhood education, how to help their child, appropriate developmental education before entering school, reading to their child and much more.

The 2018-2019 school year lottery will be held the first Friday in October 2017, and the 2019- 2020 school year lottery will be held the first Friday in March 2018. After these dates, Santa Rosa Academy will resume a normal schedule, putting the lottery a year and a half ahead of the start of school.

Parents interested in entering their children in the 2018-2019 lottery may do so online at The deadline to enter the 2018-2019 lottery is Sept. 15.

To add a student to the lottery for kindergarten or transitional kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year, the sign up form will be available starting Oct. 13.
