When can I apply to Polaris Career Center?
Students can complete the on-line application beginning October 2014.
What are the minimum requirements to attend Polaris?
A student must be 16 years of age or of junior standing by October 15 of the year they wish to attend. Students will be accepted based on their score on the Polaris Success Rubric. This rubric scores students on freshman year attendance, citizenship, number of credits earned, and attendance at Polaris recruitment activities.
When will I know if I’ve been accepted to Polaris?
Students will be notified in January after rubric scores are calculated.
How can I increase my chances of being accepted?
Students who attend our recruiting events (9th grade Advantage, Sophomore Visitations, and Open House), have good attendance and have earned the most credits during their freshman year have the best chance of getting accepted to Polaris.
What is the deadline for applications?
Students will be ranked according to the Polaris Success Rubric at the end of first semester. Applications will still be accepted through the beginning of the school year based on availability in each program.
Besides the on-line application, what other paperwork needs to be completed for enrollment?
Students need to submit a personal statement (either as an electronic attachment during the on-line application or printed and returned to their counselor).
Does each school still have guaranteed seats?
Each of the 6 schools receives one guaranteed seat (the person with the highest score from each school for each program is automatically accepted).
Can a student with a higher rubric score that applies later in the year “bump” a student who has already been accepted?
No, once a student is accepted their spot is secured.
Can seniors enroll in a two-year program?
Only students who are juniors can enroll in a Polaris two-year program. Exceptions may be made for students who are on an IEP based on the team’s recommendation.
Where can I get more information?
Questions can be directed to the Polaris Enrollment Office at 440.891.7732.
