East Mountain High School enrolls new students through a lottery process. For the 2018-2019 school year, the Open Enrollment Period was held from Thursday, February 1, 2018, through Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

All Lottery Forms must be received by 4:00pm on Wednesday, March 7, to be considered. Siblings of currently attending EMHS students receive preference in the admissions process and do not have to go through the actual drawing of names. However, siblings must still submit a Lottery Form by the deadline.

Lottery Enrollment Forms can be completed online at the East Mountain High School website. Additionally, a paper form is available in the EMHS Main Office between 8:00am and 4:00pm. Transfer students (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) are strongly encouraged to submit an unofficial transcript, including courses in progress, with their Lottery Enrollment Form to verify accurate grade placement.

Should applicants for the 2018 – 2019 freshman class exceed allotted openings, the EMHS Lottery will be held at 5:30pm, Monday, March 12, 2018, to establish class enrollments and waiting list order. The lottery drawing for grades 10, 11 and 12 will be held at this time as well. You need not be present at the lottery drawing to be admitted to EMHS.
