Barstow Fine Arts Academy is open to all students in the Barstow Unified School District and outside of the district. We encourage and welcome all families who are interested to submit an application for enrollment. We have students from all elementary schools in Barstow, as well as outside of the district, and we are committed to having a population that reflects our diverse community with students from all backgrounds and abilities, races, ethnicities, national origins, sexes, genders, and religions.
The best time to apply to Barstow Fine Arts Academy is during our yearly open enrollment window that coincides with Barstow STEM Academy’s open enrollment window; this typically occurs early spring in February of each year. Once the dates have been set for the 2023-2024 school year open enrollment window, we will be sure to advertise to all of our families.
When our application period is closed, we will fill spots as vacancies occur from the wait list. The odds of admission depend greatly on when a family applies and how many families apply. We encourage families with an interest in the Barstow Fine Arts Academy to apply for enrollment as soon as possible. Because Barstow Fine Arts Academy starts in Kindergarten, spots in first through fifth grade are limited and we will not know how many spaces we will have open until late in the school year or even the fall for the coming school year.
Families, once accepted to Barstow Fine Arts Academy, do not need to reapply each year. Students, once enrolled in Barstow Fine Arts Academy, will remain enrolled and enrollment will carry over each year.
