Choice programs gives families the opportunity to choose the educational program that is best fit for their student. Choice programs are designed for and first offered to students who are within the program's school boundary. Choice program offerings will allow all students including our economically disadvantaged and exceptional needs students the opportunity to participate in creative learning experiences that would typically be unavailable to them.
Choice Programs include the P-12 Arts continuum elementary and secondary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs, STEAM (STEM + Arts), Dual Language Immersion Program, Lighthouse Elementary Cooperative, and Everett Virtual Academy.
Choice programs require a choice program application and selection through a choice lottery process. These programs are available to all Everett Public School students, regardless of the student's zoned neighborhood school.
Click on the language of your choice to be redirected to the choice programs application form. You may submit an application for either the Emerson Dual Language Program, or the Lighthouse Cooperative Program.
New families should enroll using the same account they used to fill out their new student enrollment forms. Existing Everett Public Schools families should start the process from Home Access Center (HAC). More information about logging into HAC is available here.
At this time, there is not an application process for the STEAM Academy at Madison and Woodside Elementary Schools. The STEAM Academy is still in its pilot phase and currently every student enrolled at these schools rotates into the STEAM Specialist class once per week. Please contact the Choice Program office firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Everett Virtual Academy K-8 (EVA) enrollment follows the Intradistrict school transfer process. To request enrollment for EVA, submit the online school transfer application form which can be found here: School Transfer Information.
