Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Riverside High School participates in a unified enrollment effort through an organization called Enroll Indy (www.enrollindy.org) to fill freshmen and transfer spots.

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 Riverside High School as their first choice.

Why does Riverside High Schools participate in Enroll Indy?

As our first campus 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. With the addition of Riverside High School, we would soon be faced with the same issue. Partnering with Enroll Indy makes the application process 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 October 30. 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 call Jennene Young, Director of Enrollment at Riverside High School, to receive help in completing an application: jyoung@riversidehighschool.org or 317-726-6789.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can choose up to ten schools to which to apply on the Enroll Indy application. 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 Riverside is the only school you have an interest in within the Enroll Indy system, then list only Riverside. 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.

Do I have to live in a certain boundary or area to apply?

No, you can live anywhere in Indiana to attend Riverside High School. As long as you can get to the school, you may attend.

What happens if I put Riverside as my first choice, but I do not get a seat?

If you do not receive a spot at Riverside during the first round, you can reapply during the second round as long as there are seats open.

When will I be notified of my match?

Families will be notified of their matches after the end of each enrollment window. A list of the remaining application and notification deadlines is below.

Round 1: October 30 – January 29 (Results available February 23)

Round 2: February 1- April 30 (Results available May 20)

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