Frequently Asked Questions

Enroll Baton Rouge (EnrollBR) is a common application process created to ensure that all children have fair access to an excellent education, through the ease of a centralized application system for BRAZ schools. Our goal is to empower parents and families with school choice, by informing them of the options available so that they can select a school that will meet the needs of their child(ren). This system can be accessed both electronically and through a limited number of paper applications.

You should submit a common application through EnrollBR if you are applying to a BRAZ school for the first time, or if you would like to apply to a new BRAZ school next year. Do NOT submit an application if you are satisfied with your child’s current school and would like for them to return to that school next year.

Are all Baton Rouge schools a part of the EnrollBR common application system, including private, magnet, and East Baton Rouge Parish Public Schools?

Only a select number of schools in Baton Rouge are a part of the EnrollBR common application process. Currently, there are 24 charter schools.  Private schools, magnet schools, and East Baton Rouge Parish schools are not a part of the EnrollBR common application process.

I’m looking for Pre-K programs. Can I apply to those through EnrollBR?

No, EnrollBR will not include Pre-K programs at this time.

Once I've submitted the application electronically, how will I know that the submission is successful?

Once the application is completed online, you will receive a generated message based on the email address you provided when you created an account.

What happens after I submit my common application? When will I be notified of my child’s acceptance?

General application results will be available after January 19, 2021. Families will be able to view the results in the online application portal, which can be accessed by visiting at www.EnrollBR.org. Applicants will be notified by email (through the address listed on the application) as soon as the results are available. If your contact information changes between now and when application results are available, please be sure to log in to your family profile and update the information.

What happens after I receive my application results?

Once you receive your results, you must claim your child’s seat. If you have applied and been accepted to more than one school, you will be expected to make a choice between the schools. All families are strongly encouraged to claim their seat as soon as possible.

Are students selected based on a first come, first serve process?

Yes. EnrollBR schools are mostly public charter schools and students are accepted based upon seat availability.

What materials do I need to apply?

You will need an email address and your contact information.

Can I apply to schools directly?

You cannot apply directly to a participating school outside of the EnrollBR process.  However, schools who  are using EnrollBR for marketing purposes only offer direct access to their application on their EnrollBR landing page.

If I want to change schools, will my current school be notified that I am submitting an application?

No. You can safely apply to new schools without your current school knowing.

I want to stay at my current school. Do I need to apply?

No. Students who want to stay at their current school don’t need to apply.

I missed the first deadline. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can apply during the post application round. As long as schools have availability, they will continue to accept students. We encourage you to apply early!

Do I have to apply to a certain number of schools?

No. You should only apply to schools you actually want to attend.

I already submitted my application, but my information or school preferences have changed. Can I edit my application?

Yes, you can edit your application by logging in to the common application at enrollbr.org.

If I list more school choices, will that decrease my chances in getting into my top choice?

No. The number of choices you list on your application does not affect the likelihood of you getting into any schools. This way we are able to honor family choice, while families are not penalized for listing more than one option.

Who decides which school my child is assigned to?

You do! For a student to receive an assignment to a school, the school must be listed on the common application. That means that you, the parent/guardian, choose the schools that you want for your child.

If I get offered a seat at one of the EnrollBR schools, can I still choose to return to my district school?

If you receive an offer from any one of the EnrollBR schools and later decide to return to your district school, you will be able to do so.

If I get offered a seat at an EnrollBR school, but change my mind and decide to attend another EnrollBR school, will I lose my seat at the first school?

Your child will be offered a seat  at any school you select, as long as there is availability. The order you select your options in does not matter.

Once you select a school and submit your registration information, you forfeit the seat at any other EnrollBR  school you applied for previously. If you decide to select another school listed, you will need to log in to the portal and send an inquiry to the school to check their availability.

Is my child guaranteed a spot at the school where his / her sibling attends?

No. Siblings are children who share a parent and/or live in the same house.

Our team is committed to keeping families together whenever possible. However, sometimes there are not enough seats available at a school to accommodate all applicants. Schools that grant sibling priority will consider applicants with siblings before applicants without, but cannot guarantee that any student will receive a seat.

My child has special needs. How do I know if a school can accommodate him or her?

All EnrollBR schools are required to meet your child’s needs as identified in his/her Individualized Education Plan or 504 Plan. We encourage you to reach out to schools directly to ask more about their special education services and staff. You can research your options by viewing school profiles. Please note that all K-12 school systems are required to serve your child, regardless of their exceptionality.

How does the EnrollBR Common Application differ from OneApp in New Orleans?

  • You do not rank your schools in order of preference.
  • You are allowed to select as many schools as you choose.
  • Your child is offered a seat based on first-come, first serve basis. In New Orleans, students are assigned a school through an algorithm, and are assigned a seat at a particular school.
  • The EnrollBR common application does not provide families with a single best offer. This means that you have the freedom to apply to multiple schools and may be accepted by multiple schools. The final choice is yours and yours alone.
