When is the Lott
ery?  
The lottery took place on March 5 at 10 am, and offers are now being made and processed due to the priority listed below.

Lottery Process:  The Idaho Legislature established the lottery process for charter school admission through Idaho Code Statute 33-5206(11). As a brief overview, all applicants are placed into grade-level-specific 'Lottery Priority Groups' as follows and are drawn in order based on the below groupings. Current students will automatically be re-enrolled through a verification process.  

  • First Priority: Board approved Founders children
  • Second Priority: Siblings of students already selected by the lottery, and students of full-time Forge employees
  • Third Priority: Students that are transferring from Sage International School
  • Fourth Priority: Applicants that reside within Forge International's primary area of attendance 
  • Fourth Priority: Applicants that reside outside Forge International's primary area of attendance  

Lottery Draw Results for the 2021-22 lottery are posted to the left. Please Note: When the lottery results are posted, it is NOT the final list. This is only the order in which each child has been drawn. We have to adjust the lottery due to sibling preference - SEE Second Priority.

Offers for Enrollment:  All students that secure placement during the lottery will receive an email from Forge International providing an 'Offer for Enrollment’. Offers for enrollment must be accepted within 48 hours. If a response is not received within 48 hours, the student’s name will be moved to the bottom of the waiting list.

Students that do not secure placement through the lottery are highly encouraged to still apply, and will be contacted when space becomes available. 
Enrollment is a process, and offers for enrollment are made through the summer. However, students will need to fill out the enrollment application each year as they do not carry over.

Non-DiscriminationForge International School does not discriminate on the basis on race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin in its educational and admissions policies and affords to all students the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available at the school.
