Admissions Timeline

Admissions Process

The RINI Middle College is an open enrollment public charter school that enrolls students from across the state of Rhode Island. As a statewide charter school, we purposefully seek to enroll a demographically diverse student body as essential to our mission of diversifying the future nursing and healthcare workforce. When RINI receives more enrollment applications than available seats, admission is determined through a blind lottery.

September 26, 2019 through March 26, 2020 – Student Recruitment

RINI engages in a multi-faceted approach to reach a broad audience including mass media, social-media and direct recruitment.

September 26, 2019 – Application for 2020-2021 Opens

Beginning September 26, 2019 students and families can submit applications to RINI for admission to the school for the 2020-2021 school year. RINI will be enrolling a full 9th-grade class and anticipate only a limited number of openings in grade 10.

March 26, 2020 – Application Deadline

When RINI has more applicants than we have available seats, RINI conducts a blind lottery to determine admissions. Applications must be received by March 26, 2019 to be eligible for the lottery for the 2020-2021 schoolyear.

April 1, 2020 – Admission Lottery Drawing

RINI will conduct its admissions lottery on April 1, 2020.

April 2 – Family Notification

Families of students who have applied to RINI by the April 1st lottery will receive written notification of admissions status within one week of the lottery drawing. Families of students who have been selected for admission through the lottery system will also receive the necessary enrollment documents to be completed and returned to the school. Families of students who were not selected initially through the lottery will receive written notification of their position on the waiting list. RINI has established a deadline of not less than fifteen (15) days for families to confirm their acceptance of enrollment. RINI makes a reasonable effort to contact families to confirm their acceptance of enrollment. Should families fail to confirm their acceptance of enrollment, the seat may be offered to another student in the first position on the waiting list.
