Enrolling your child at a BASIS Curriculum School is an easy process. Select your state – Arizona, Texas or Washington, D.C. – and you will be taken to our online application portal. Be sure to read the applicable enrollment policies and if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Enrollment Department at (480) 696-3997 or email us at enrollment@BASISed.com.
Information Sessions and School Tours
We are open and transparent about our learning culture because we understand that choosing a school is an eminently personal decision. Information sessions, led by an experienced BASIS.ed team member, offer an introduction to key elements of our top-ranked, tuition-free BASIS program.
We also encourage parents who are choosing a school for their child to schedule a time to tour a school campus to watch our students in person.
What is the difference between BASIS and other charter schools?
BASIS charter schools feature a top-ranked stem inspired liberal arts curriculum that inspires students to love learning; to develop a fascination for critical inquiry; to be independent and formulate their own goals; and to graduate prepared for top-tier colleges.
Is there a tuition for the charter schools?
BASIS charter schools are tuition-free. However, we do require a refundable security deposit that is held in the event that school property is lost or damaged. This deposit is refunded when the student has left their BASIS.ed school. In addition, due to state funding restrictions, the full-day kindergarten programs may have a varied fee. Please contact the schools directly for more information.
How do I apply?
Parents/guardians should complete and submit students’ enrollment applications during the Open Enrollment period. You may apply to more than one BASIS charter school, but you must submit separate applications, per student, to each of your preferred schools. All applications must be submitted through the online enrollment portal, which can be found at enrollbasis.com. Applications need not be signed for entry into the lottery, nor to be considered for acceptance. Applicants who are offered enrollment at a BASIS charter school will be provided with instructions for accepting the offer, and printing and signing the Registration Packet.
How do the lottery and waitlist work?
At any grade level, if the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings, enrollment is determined by a lottery and waitlist numbers. The Open Enrollment period for BASIS charter schools is NOT first-come, first-served. Only applications completed during the Open Enrollment period are included in the lottery pool. Applications submitted after the Open Enrollment period has ended will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, behind applications received during the Open Enrollment period.
