Waitlist Process

Thank you for applying to the Acero Schools K-8 lottery for the 2020/21 school year! The following applies to scholars and families placed on the waitlist for one or more of our schools.
To review your waitlist placements, please log in to your SchoolMint account. If you prefer to discuss waitlist matters over the phone, please call 312.637.3900 and an Acero staff member will reach back to you as soon as possible.
Here’s what you should know about being on the waitlist:
  • If you have a “waitlisted” status at a school, you do not need to take any further action at this time.
  • If a seat becomes available for you at your waitlisted school, you will receive a notification via text, email, and/or phone call.
  • Waitlist notifications began Monday, April 24, 2020, and continue throughout the spring and summer.
  • You must respond to the notification and accept your seat offer in SchoolMint within 48 hours of the initial offer. If you fail to do so, your seat will be offered to the next scholar and you will be moved to the bottom of the waitlist.
  • Once you accept your seat, you will receive further communications regarding virtual registration.
  • If you accept a seat at a school that is not your first-choice campus, you will remain on the waitlist at your first-choice campus unless you advise Acero Schools to remove your child from all waitlists.
  • If you accept a seat at your first choice campus, all remaining offers will automatically be cancelled. This is because you accepted your first choice offer.
  • If you are having difficulty accessing SchoolMint, please reach out via email or phone (312.637.3900), and an enrollment staff member will assist you.
Thank you so much for your interest in attending an Acero School! We hope that you will join our family, and we appreciate your patience as we give each scholar a fair opportunity to attend their school of choice.
For questions specific to enrollment at a particular campus, please reach out to the enrollment staff member assigned to the school.
