Enrollment Process

Birchwood STEAM and Career Academy will open during the fall of 2025-26.  It is encouraged that applicants apply by April 30, 2025, but applications will continue to be accepted until the first day of school. An application is not fully complete until the student and parent(s)/guardian(s) have attended either a public information meeting or have met privately with the instructor of the school for which they are applying. If there are more applicants than student positions available a lottery will be held for those students who have completed all application requirements by April 30, 2025.
