We plan on having a mximum of 105 children enrolled at Wonderland Charter School for SY 2017/2018. Wonderland Charter School teaches Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, & 5th grade.
The enrollment process for SY 2017/2018 started February 1st 2017 with families submitting Letters of Interest indicating their desire for their child(ren) to enroll at Wonderland Charter School.
Prior to submitting the Letter of Interest, you will first need to call and make an appointment to come see the school in person and receive an orientation on our school. This orientation is not a 'sell job'. Rather it is an informative session that explains what we are and what parents can expect from us. Because charter schools are different from district schools, as well as different from other charter schools, it is relatively easy for the situation to arise where a parent does not know what a particular charter school is designed to accomplish and how it is expected to accomplish that mission. In those cases, it is hard for that particular charter school to fulfill a parent's expectation. This session is designed to avoid that from occurring by providing parents information ahead of time so they can make an informed decision. These orientations started in January and will continue up to September of the start of the school year.
In February, we will announce how many spaces will be available for the upcoming school year. Much of this will depend on how many families will be leaving this area and our school during the upcoming year.
Based on Charter School Law, we will accept registrations from residents of the State College Area School District, as well as residents of Penns Valley, Bellefonte, Bald Eagle, Tyrone, or any other surrounding school districts on a first-come, first-served basis once the Letter of Interest Period is satisfied. The Letter of Interest Period for us is always from February 1st to February 28th. During this period, we must give priority to residents of the State College Area School District. After that period children residing in any school district in Pennsylvania are eligible to register at Wonderland Charter School providing there are spaces available.
If you think you are interested in what we have to offer, please come look us over. We request that you give us a call so we can schedule a mutually convenient time for your visit. We ask that you call so we don't have too many adult visitors in the classrooms at one time which tends to distract our children who are already in the school. We know that our school is not for every child. Our curriculum is different and our goals are also different. This is really an issue of "Parental Choice"!
If you think you might be interested in having your child attend the following years after SY 2017/2018, please contact us with information on how to contact you. We can then put your information in a file for the pertinent year and notify you when that year's particular Letter of Interest Period is approaching. You can write us at Wonderland Charter School; 2112 Sandy Drive; State College, PA 16803. Or, you can e-mail us at:
