If there are more than 50 students who meet the minimum qualifications for acceptance, then a selection lottery will be performed by the MCEC Selection Committee. The committee will follow the intent of the Cooperative Innovative High School Act giving priority to at-risk students, first-generation college students, and/or students in need of acceleration. Qualifying siblings of current students will also be given priority. Non-selected students will be placed on a waitlist.  

The application process requires students to submit a completed application packet by February 20, 2020.
