Space is limited. A lottery process is used when applications exceed capacity. The lottery for the 2021-22 school year will take place in March. 

Families will be notified via SchoolMint in March whether students are accepted or placed on a waitlist. Full lottery results, including waitlist order will be posted as a news story on our website.  

Lottery Process

If there are more applications than space, Highline will hold a lottery including all students with completed applications. Students not accepted in the lottery will be placed on a waitlist in the order they are chosen from the pool of remaining students. If there are more seats available than there are applicants, applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
