Re-Enrollment for CURRENT Students for 2020-21

Re-enrollment begins this Monday, November 4, for current Maeser students who will be returning for the 2020-21 school year. To secure your student’s spot at Maeser for the coming year, please visit our front office during office hours (M-Th 7:30am-4:00pm, Fri 7:30am-1:30pm) to submit the required re-enrollment paperwork and your $50 re-enrollment deposit.

Please note: The $50 re-enrollment deposit can be paid online through our fee payment system, but you must still come in to the front office to fill out and sign the required paperwork. Check your email for the series of re-enrollment tips we’ve been sending out all this week!

Re-enrollment must be completed by Thursday, December 5, 2019. This allows us to plan for the number of open spots we can offer to new students in our enrollment lottery in February. For the past several years, our wait list has far exceeded the number of seats available at Maeser, so we want to be sure your Maeser student has a spot reserved for next year!

NEW Student Lottery Applications Are Now Open For 2020-21

Lottery applications for NEW students for the 2020-21 school year are NOW OPEN! If you have more than one NEW student applying for Maeser next year, you must submit a separate application for each new student.

REMEMBER: DO NOT submit an online application for your CURRENT Maeser student — online applications are for NEW students only. Re-enrollment must be completed in person in the front office.

To submit an application for a NEW student, click here to complete the Lottery Application. You can also access the lottery application by visiting our website ( and clicking Apply — be sure to choose the correct year (2020-2021).

ACT Prep Class — FREE for Sophomores

A FREE ACT class is being offered to Sophomores in November. The workshop consists of 3 classes held November 6, 13, and 20th from 3:45-7:45 pm to cover all the necessary skills needed to ACE the ACT. Sign ups are limited to the first 30 students and can be found at the front desk.

Each year since having this course, the cohort has increased their composite ACT scores. This year our composite ACT score average was 25.5, which is 5.2 points higher than the state average. Take advantage of this opportunity!
