Enrollment at Lionsgate Academy

Thank you for your interest in Lionsgate Academy. Our enrollment process involves a lottery system through which prospective families may apply for a spot at either our Minnetonka or Shoreview campus or both.

We have completed the 2018-2019 lottery for both our Minnetonka campus (grades 7-12) and our new Shoreview campus (grades 7-10). Any applications received at this point will be added to the bottom of the waitlist. You may apply to both campuses. You may submit only one application per student, per campus. A link to the applications can be found below.

If you are interested in our transition program for ages 18 – 21, please contact Emily Richards at .

All students who enter Lionsgate Academy are enrolled through graduation. Siblings will have preference on the waitlist should they want to enroll. The wait list does not carry over from year to year, so any student not gaining entry in any given year will need to reapply for the following year.

Submitting an application to Lionsgate Academy does not guarantee enrollment.  While most openings for the 2018-2019 school year will be for grade 7, a limited number of openings may be available in other grades. For more information regarding our enrollment policy, please click here.
