Enrollment at Forge


Forge International School is part of the Sage International Network of Schools, a public charter school, and is mandated by Idaho Code Statute 33-5206(11), to hold an annual enrollment lottery when demand for enrollment exceeds the number of available spaces.

Students who are currently attending Forge International
do not have to fill out an application.

When is the Lottery.  The Enrollment Lottery closes on March 1. The actual Lottery draw will take place at Forge International on March 5 at 10 am, in the Forge Gym. The lottery is open to the public.

Lottery ProcessThe 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  

*When are Lottery Draw Results Posted.  The draw results will be posted on Forge International School's website by March 9.
*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. (Example: A 4th grade student was drawn and will be enrolling at Forge. This student has a 1st grade sister who was not drawn and is on a waiting list. However, since her brother got in, she now has sibling preference and is moved up the list and is able to enroll.)

Offers for Enrollment.  All students that secure placement during the lottery will receive an email from Forge International providing an 'Offer for Enrollment’. Offers of 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 during the lottery will be placed on a waiting list and, when space becomes available, will be contacted.

Waiting List. Once the Enrollment Lottery Application closes, we will post the Wait List Application on our website. Waiting lists do not carry from year-to-year and are replaced yearly from the results of the annual enrollment lottery. 

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.
