MySchoolApp Enrollment Forms

Throughout the enrollment process, you will access your enrollment information in MySchoolApp. Please be sure that both students and parents/legal guardians are able to log in to each of their individual accounts. If you have any issues accessing your accounts, please contact the admissions team. In the meantime, below is a list of some important documents and enrollment requirements you should be aware of: 

  • Student Passport: The school’s trip to Chile during the semester is a highlight for the students. As such, we want to make sure there will be no problems encountered when your student travels internationally. All students must have a current passport that does not expire within 6 months of the travel to/from Chile.
  • Student Physical Examination: Students must undergo a medical examination with the Alzar School provided Candidate Physical Exam Form within 3 months of arriving at the Alzar School (between May and July for Fall semester). We require families to get this form completed in that narrow time window to ensure that we get accurate, up-to-date information to best support the student while they are with us.
  • Student Immunizations: Students must be current on immunizations and relevant vaccinations.  If there is a medical contraindication to any of these immunizations/vaccinations, please provide documentation from your family health care provider.  All students are asked to upload a photocopy of their complete immunization/vaccination record as part of submitting their Medical Evaluation and Physical Examination Form.  
    • The student must have (and provide a record of receiving): 
      • Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (DTaP) – current within 5 years. 
      • Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) 
      • Polio
      • Hepatitis B 
      • Varicella (Chickenpox) 
      • Hepatitis A 
      • COVID-19 vaccine
      • 2024 Influenza Vaccine
    • Some health care providers may recommend additional vaccinations because the student will be traveling internationally.  Families and physicians often refer to the Center for Disease Control’s traveler recommendations: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/chile.htm.  Students must obtain any additional vaccinations for Chile prior to the start of their Alzar School semester as immunizations and vaccines are not available locally and the special regimens for administering those cannot be supported by Alzar School faculty.

Get Outside

We are so excited to welcome you to our semester. During your 5 months of Alzar School you will accomplish so much and meet so many other terrific young leaders and educators. While we don’t require any prior experience in the outdoors for our semester, we hope that you will (responsibly) get outside and stay active as a way to prepare for your immersive semester.

We hope you’re already following Alzar School on Facebook and Instagram to stay current with the happenings on campus and expedition. Now that you’re part of the Alzar School family, this is a great way to keep up to date with school events, projects, and special programs.

During your semester at Alzar School, you will spend time on our campuses in Chile and Idaho! Our 400 acre campus in Cascade, Idaho is nestled in the mountains and bordered by the north fork of the Payette River, giving us lots of space to explore without leaving home. Check out our Idaho campus here. 

While in Chile, we utilize our own Base Patagonia in the Aysén Region of Chile. We make our home in the Coyhaique area, which provides incredible learning and adventuring opportunities.  Student’s days are spent getting to know the towns and the communities in which they reside. The natural beauty of glacial lakes, crystal clear rivers, and dramatic volcanoes provide inspiring classrooms.
