We are currently FULL in all grades for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you would like to be added to our waitlist, please contact our office.

For the 2023-2024 school year, the transfer application period begins on December 1, 2022 through February 15, 2023. If you will have a 4th, 5th, or 6th grader, you will need to complete a transfer to be considered for the lottery.  If you are applying for a 7th or 8th grader, please be sure to check your address here.  Later this school year, the district will send out a survey asking where your current 6th grader plans to attend for the 2023-2024.  It will be extremely important that you complete this survey. If LMAAC is not your home school, please complete a transfer form to be considered for the lottery.

School tours will be at 8:30 am on November 10, December 9, January 20, and February 2.  No RSVP required.  

Students that are currently enrolled at LMAAC for the 2022-2023 do not need to re-apply.
