Prospective Students


(for students outside the district)

Applications are being accepted for the 2019-2020 school year.

IC 20-26-11-32 requires that school corporations that choose to accept transfer tuition must annually set the number of transfer tuition students they will accept from outside the district.  Once these caps are set, the district also can set a deadline for accepting transfer students from outside the district.  Further, once the deadline is reached, if the number of applications exceeds the number of available transfer tuition slots, the district is to hold a lottery for those transfer positions. For school year 2019-20, there will be two deadlines, the first deadline for applications is May 31, 2019.  If the transfer student numbers do exceed available slots, the lottery will be held in early June.   Parents will then be notified by mid-June.  After this initial acceptance of students, parents can still complete an application but acceptance will be based on available space (school and grade level) and the date the application was received.

Fairfield Community Schools accepts transfer tuition students with no transfer tuition charged for families who choose to send their students to one of our schools. 

To become a prospective student at Fairfield Schools,

3.  Once student is accepted outright or by virtue of the lottery in June, complete a signed agreement with the district and then register with the appropriate school by late June.

4.  After the possible lottery in June, parents may continue to file an application for transfer and if accepted (based on available space (school and grade level), complete a signed agreement with the district and then register with the appropriate school by the first week in August.
