Pioneer High School for the Performing Arts is a public charter school that does not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, creed, color, gender, national origin, or religion. Pioneer High School admissions and transfer policies comply with the Utah Code 53A-1a506.5.

Pioneer serves 500 students in 9th grade through 12th grade. Pioneer fills its student enrollment based on the following priority:

Open Enrollment for 2016- 2017 Academic Year (Ends March 15th)
Once a student has been admitted to the school through an appropriate process, he or she may remain in attendance through subsequent grades. A new applicant for admission to the charter school, however, would be subject to the lottery if, as of the open enrollment closing date, the total number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available at the school. Open Enrollment dates will be publicly announced and will adhere to Utah State Statute.

Lottery Selection
A lottery is a random selection process by which Pioneer High School admits applicants. PHS will use a lottery if, during the open enrollment period, more students apply for admission to the charter school (in any grade) than can be admitted. During a public meeting, an accepted lottery process will be used to select students. The random drawing will begin with 12th grade, proceeding down through 9th, and each student is assigned a number identifying the order in which they are drawn. Following the lottery preferential enrollment is addressed. Afterwards classes are filled to capacity using the sequence obtained from the lottery drawing.

When a student is admitted to the school through the process, all siblings of that student are admitted immediately, if space is available. If space is not available for a particular grade, that sibling will be placed on the waiting list. Students not selected will remain on a waiting list, preserving the order as determined by the lottery, giving preference to siblings of attending students. Pioneer will notify applicants of the lottery results within 2 weeks. Students placed on the waiting list will be given the opportunity to attend the school if openings become available during the school year. Families will be notified and students have 3 school days to accept the opening. Students who apply after the enrollment period will be admitted as space allows or will be added to the waiting list through subsequent lotteries.
