The first 75 learner applications will be accepted for enrollment beginning with the 2014-2015 school year. The remaining applicants will be placed into a lottery for selection. The lottery process will consider grade, gender, ethnicity and socioeconomics.

Renaissance Academy is part of the national New Technology Network educational model and is currently under construction at the former site of Value City at 806 Eastern Boulevard.
This educational model uses project-based learning, an active curriculum that challenges students to explore real-world problems in order to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying.
