• Admissions & Enrollment

    Families may apply to Marion P. Thomas Charter Schools in two ways: by completing a paper application, or by logging into the new Online Enrollment Center at www.newarkenrolls.org. Families can pick up a copy of the paper application at any participating school or at a number of community locations and can return the application to any school. Just be sure you list Marion P. Thomas Charter School -- STEAM Academy, PAC Academy or the High School as your top choice on the application!

  • Enrollment Process

    One Newark Enrolls is a system of choice where all families can access great schools for their children, regardless of the school’s status as district or charter. The system is available to any Newark family wishing to enroll their child in a new school for the upcoming year. Students may rank up to eight school choices – both district and charter – on a single application. They will then receive a single offer to attend the best possible school given their selections. Apply Now

  • Eligibility: 

    Marion P Thomas Charter School is open to all Newark residents. We do accept applications for non-Newark residents, however, preference will be given to Newark residents in the lottery.

    Completing Your Application:

    • Completing an online application on http://newarkenrolls.org is the easiest way to apply to Marion P Thomas Charter School . Families can apply for all siblings at once and upload required documents (birth certificate and residency documents) to their applications.
    • If you already have a School Mint account, you do not have to create a new one.
    • Families new to Newark will need to request a School Mint login by clicking ‘Register for School Mint”. Your student's information will be verified and an account will be created for you. You will receive account login details to your email address once the information is verified.
    • Current Marion P Thomas Charter School families do not need to reapply or create a new application for the next school year. Returning families are only asked to submit residency documents to secure their seat(s) for the following year. We will reach out to you to collect your reverification residency documents in the spring.
