Apply to Carthay!
Students within the traditional Carthay boundaries may enroll at any time but are required to complete a Choices application for grades 1-5. Students outside the traditional boundaries can apply for grades 1-5 with a Choices application and are admitted based on magnet points and availability. "Ontime Applications" for the following year become available in October and are due in November. After the November deadline, students can use the "Space Available Application." Once a student is enrolled in the Carthay magnet (grades 1-5), no future eChoices applications are necessary.
Kindergarten students in the traditional boundaries are guaranteed admission and can apply in the spring; kindergarten students outside the traditional boundaries can apply if there is space available and they obtain a waiver from their home school.
