How to Apply

Based on Utah statute, students must be 5 years old by September 1st in order to start kindergarten. Numbers for each grade level may fluctuate based on the numbers of enrollment applications received. Bridge will run the lottery as grade levels become full. If a grade level is not full, Bridge will run additional lotteries, each month as needed until all spots are filled. All  students who reside in Utah and submit a timely lottery application will be considered for admissions.

  1. Apply Online - Submit an Online Lottery Application. This places you in the applicant pool.
  2. Lottery Process - If the number of student applications exceed the number of positions available, students will be randomly chosen to fill available positions; this process is referred to as a lottery.  All applicants in the lottery pool will be  considered, and a computerized lottery program will randomly select students.
  3. Lottery Preferences - In accordance with Utah Code 53G-6-502, Bridge Elementary will give enrollment preference in the lottery to: (a) a child or grandchild of an individual who actively participated in the development of Bridge Elementary or serves on the Bridge Elementary governing board; (b) a sibling of an individual who is presently or previously enrolled in Bridge Elementary; (c) a child of an employee of Bridge Elementary; (d) a child of an individual who is a member of the U.S. military.
  4. Registration Process -  Families will be notified  via e-mail of their child’s acceptance into the school.  Accepted  families will be notified of the next steps in the registration process  and the timeline they will need to follow.

Non-Discrimination Assurances

Completion and submission of a lottery application does not  guarantee admission to, or constitute acceptance in, Bridge Elementary.  

Bridge Elementary is a public school open to all Utah students  without discrimination and on the same basis as other public schools  that may not discriminate in admission policies and practices. The  Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces four federal statutes that  prohibit discrimination in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance from the Department of Education (ED). Bridge does not  discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, proficiency in English, national  origin, sexual orientation, or age.

Admission, enrollment, and transfer procedures will comply with Utah Code.

School of Choice: As a school of choice Bridge recognizes our model is not the right fit for every child. Some children thrive in the collaborative learning pod experience complete with multiple transitions daily, while other students may find the large learning pod with lots of movement and lots of students provides sensory overload and is not the ideal learning environment for the child. Parents and guardians need to carefully determine if the learning model provided by Bridge is the model that fits best for their child.
