Information about the Enrollment Lottery

When the number of students who want to attend charter schools exceeds their capacity, the lottery is used to create a waitlist. Each applicant who submits an application during the application window will be part of the lottery draw. To determine the order of the waiting list, the applicants are sorted in the order they were received. For priority groups, please see the table below. The list will determine the order in which spots are available.

The application window for the 2022/23 School year will be open from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022. The deadline for the 22/23 Lottery is March 31, 2022, 11:59pm

March 12, 2021 was the deadline for you to apply for the initial lottery in the 2021/22 school years. You can still apply, as we will hold smaller lotteries (as necessary) once the waitlists are exhausted. For more information, click here.
