For those students applying under sibling preference, a sibling lottery will be held in the event there are more siblings applying than seats available in any particular grade. A sibling is defined as one of two or more individuals having one common parent. Non-Philadelphia residents are ineligible for admission. In order to apply for kindergarten, children must be five years of age by September 1st of the school year.

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
Selection Process
With regard to the selection process, no student shall be discriminated against for any reason including race, gender, national origin, disability, religion, political views, immigration status or sexual preference. Furthermore, the school will not discriminate on the basis of intellectual ability, athletic prowess, measures of scholastic achievement or aptitude, or proficiency in the 
English or Spanish language. 

Students will enter a lottery based on grade. Students are selected randomly from a pool of eligible applicants. Space permitting, students with siblings currently attending our school are given preference for admission (as per Board of Trustees). Students who meet the criterion for “preferential sibling admission” may be admitted on or about the third week of March. 

After the lottery is complete, Parents and Guardians are notified of the outcome of the lottery and are then invited to attend a New Student Orientation typically held in the month of April. Parents and Guardians must complete the application for registration and comply with all other registration requirements. Academic transcripts and all other records from schools previously attended are requested for admission. Upon admission to the school, a complete Physical Examination conducted by a Primary Health-Care Provider will be requested along with a copy of the child’s Medical Record
