Wait List for Prospective Students

All students must be added to the wait list in order to have the opportunity to be admitted to FFCA. If you would like to add your child to our wait list, please see below for the application, requirements, and additional information. You will use the same application regardless of their age or grade and up to four children can be added to the same application.

The Association of Alberta Public Charter Schools (www.taapcs.ca) has produced a pair of videos which explain what public charter schools are and how they are a distinctive part of Alberta’s public education system.  Check them out below and share the link with friends, family and other connections.

Wait List / Lottery Application

You can add your child to the wait list as soon as you have their birth certificate. Applications may be submitted year round, and must include a copy of the birth certificate and most recent report card, if the child is already in school (may be the June report card if they have not yet received the first one of the new year).

To add your child to the Wait List, please print the form below, fill it out and mail to the address provided on the application with the required documents. Applications must include a valid email address and a phone number in order to be processed. You will receive a confirmation by email within 3 weeks.

If a child has completed their Kindergarten year in another school, they currently experience a 5 to 7 year wait (up to 10 years in the North).

Online Wait List System

The Online Wait List System is for parents who have received a confirmation email stating that their child has been added to the wait list. You may log in to view your family profile, send an address update and renew the application each October. If your child was added before October 1, 2016 and the application was renewed on time each year, you can view the rank. If your child was added on or after October 1, 2016 or the application was renewed late, they are part of the lottery system; no rank is associated with your child. We do not give out passwords, however, if you are unable to login, please email the exact id/password you are trying so that we can identify the issue. It is your responsibility to login and renew each October. We do not make exceptions for any reason if the renewal is done late.

Wait List Renewal

ALL wait list applications require renewal each October.

To renew, log in to the Online Wait List System any day during the month of October, click the RENEW button and follow the prompts. If you forget during October, you can still log in to renew, however it will be considered late. Mark it in your calendar as there are NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Most of your questions can be answered in the Frequently Asked Questions document below.

Lottery System Information

*Updated June 8th, 2017*

In order to create an opportunity for all families that would like to join the FFCA community, we have implemented a Weighted Lottery System for any student added to the wait list on or after October 1st, 2016 who does not have sibling or priority status. For every year that your child's application is renewed, your child will receive an additional entry into the lottery. The lottery system will not take effect until the year 2022/23 for kindergarten students and possibly 5 to 7 years after that for grade level students because we have to exhaust all currently ranked children on the wait list before implementing a lottery system. Have a look at the Question and Answer PDF document below for additional information. Please note: if there are discrepancies between the 4 versions of the PDF, the official version is in English.
