The Navajo Tribal Attendance law states that Navajo children between the ages of five (5) and nineteen (19) that are not graduated from high school must be attending school. Students who are dropped because of excessive absences will be referred to Family Court of the Navajo Nation. (Tribal Code Title 10, Chapter. Section 118, Paragraph A.)

Arizona Revised Statutes 15-184 states, “…school may refuse to admit any pupil who has been expelled from another educational institution or who is in the process of being expelled from another educational institution.”

High School

Shonto Preparatory Technology High School accepts enrollment application packets for students fifteen (15) through eighteen (18) years of age. While students may apply for admission at any time of year, students are encouraged to submit their application packet on or before May 1st for the following school year. Initial admissions and if necessary, a lottery, shall be conducted at that time to determine enrollment for the following school year based on applications received by May 1st.

Applications will be accepted after the May 1st deadline before or during the school year for any remaining openings available.

Arizona Revised Statutes §15-184(B) provides that enrollment preference shall be granted to pupils returning to the charter school and to siblings of pupils already enrolled. A.R.S. §15-184(C) states that enrollment preference may be granted by the School to students who are in foster care, homeless, or those who are children, grandchildren or legal wards of employees of the school, Governing Board members, or employees, directors, officers, partners or Board members of the charter holder.

If capacity at the School is insufficient to enroll all those who submit an application on or before May 1st, the School shall select pupils through a lottery except that preference shall be given to siblings of pupils selected.

Shonto Preparatory Technology High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, color, religion, sex, or disability and operates its educational programs in compliance with all applicable law.
