We believe all children can learn and we take an individualized approach to each student’s development.*
Due to the mandatory school closures for all Illinois schools through March 30, 2020, the Catalyst Circle Rock K-8 and Catalyst Maria K-8 and 9-12 school lotteries for the 2020-2021 school year (scheduled for March 25, 2020 at Catalyst Circle Rock) will be postponed indefinitely. A new date will be released as soon as it becomes available. The applications for the lotteries will remain open.
Applications are still accepted after the lottery, and scholars will either begin the enrollment process if a seat at the desired grade level is available or will be added to the waiting list for the desired grade.
Catalyst Circle Rock gives siblings preference in the enrollment process- an eligible sibling is defined as a biological or legally adopted brother or sister as a student currently enrolled at Catalyst Circle Rock. Cousins, nieces, nephews and unrelated children sharing an address with the applicant are not considered siblings.
The Catalyst Schools' lottery policy is located here.
