If more applications are received than there are seats available, the school will hold a randomized lottery to determine which applicants are offered a seat for enrollment. All applications submitted within the application window will be referred into the lottery, assuming an application is not a duplicate submission and is otherwise eligible to attend the school. The application window for enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year is September 25, 2020, through January 25, 2021.
The lottery for the 2021-2022 school year will be conducted on February 10, 2021. Priority will be given to siblings of students that are currently attending. The lottery will be conducted by the school on the Apply Philly Charter system.
Upon application submission, each applicant is automatically assigned a random lottery number. When the lottery is run, it will take the following into account: first, the priority group an applicant falls into, and, second, the applicant’s random lottery number. Seats will first be offered to applicants who fall into the first priority group in order of lowest random lottery number to highest. The lottery will then offer seats to applicants in the second, third, etc. priority groups in order of random lottery number until the number of available seats has been exhausted. Applicants who were not offered a seat through the lottery will be waitlisted in order of their priority group first, and their random lottery number second.
Applicants who were offered a seat through the lottery will be notified on February 12, 2021, via email through Apply Philly Charter. Applicants will also be able to log-in to their Apply Philly Charter accounts on February 12th to view their application results. Applicants who were offered a seat through the lottery will have until March 12, 2021, to accept their seat offer on Apply Philly Charter by clicking “accept” in their Apply Philly Charter accounts. Applicants will then be required to submit enrollment paperwork to the school by March 26, 2021. Enrollment paperwork will not be collected through Apply Philly Charter.
Parents/guardians will be notified via regular mail as to whether or not a child has been admitted. If a child is not admitted within that school year, a parent/guardian must re-apply for the lottery for the next school year.
In order to apply for Kindergarten children must be 5 Years of age by September 1st of the school year for which they are applying.
