Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions

Herron High School and Riverside High School participate in a unified enrollment effort through an organization called Enroll Indy (www.enrollindy.org) to fill freshmen and transfer spots for the 2019-20 school year.

What is Enroll Indy?

Enroll Indy is an organization created to streamline the application process for students and their families. Families with an 8th grade student, or a transfer student who would like a 10th, 11th or 12th grade spot, should fill out the application and list Herron High School as their first choice.

Why does Indianapolis Classical Schools (Herron and Riverside High Schools) participate in Enroll Indy?

As Herron High School gained local and national recognition for our student success, we were faced with a decision on how to make the enrollment process more equitable for all families. Our waiting list was reaching upwards of 300-400 students. The addition of our second campus, Riverside High School, helped alleviate some of the waiting list, and by partnering with Enroll Indy, the enrollment process is more accessible for all families. This process also helps us fulfill our mission of offering a world-class education to students from diverse populations.

When will applications be accepted?

Applications will be available beginning November 1. The deadline for round 1 of enrollment is January 31.  Families must apply online at www.enrollindy.org/apply. No paper applications will be available, but families who do not have access to a computer or a mobile device may come to Herron High School or Riverside High School and use the dedicated enrollment computers during school hours: 9am-4pm, Mondays-Thursdays or 10am-3pm on Fridays. To apply outside of these hours, please visit an Enroll Indy enrollment center. For more information on one of these centers, contact a member of the enrollment team.

How does the application process work?

Check back here on November 1 for a link to an application step-by-step.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You may choose up to ten schools to which you can apply. If you are not willing to have your student attend a certain school, do NOT list that school just to fill the ten spaces. If your student will be applying to private schools or a district school, and Herron High School or Riverside High School are the only schools within the Enroll Indy system you have an interest in, then only list them, or the one you wish to attend, on the application. This is important to note as there are no waiting lists with the Enroll Indy system. The idea is to match students with the school they want the most within the system.

What if I am in an IPS school, such as CFI or Edison School of the Arts, 47, and I have a feeder high school? Can I still apply to Herron High School?

Yes, if you want to attend Herron High School, you must rank it as your first choice.

What happens if I do not match to my choice?

If you do not match to one of your choices, you will default to your neighborhood or boundary school. If you are unsatisfied with that match, you may reapply, provided there are spaces still available.

When will I be notified of my match?

Dates for the enrollment windows are listed below:

  • Round one: November 1 – January 31; results emailed to the email address you provide on your application on February 21
  • Round two: February 1 – April 30, results emailed to the email address you provide on your application on May 21
  • Continued enrollment on a first-come, first served basis after April 30 as space permits

What steps will I need to take to secure my spot?

A timeline for securing your spot and submitting your paperwork will be emailed shortly after you receive your results email.
