The lottery for the 2021-2022 school year will be conducted on 2/10/21. 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: 1st, the priority group an applicant falls into, and, 2nd, the applicant’s random lottery number. Seats will first be offered to applicants who fall into the 1st priority group in order of lowest random lottery number to highest. The lottery will then offer seats to applicants in the 2nd, 3rd, etc. priority groups in order of random lottery number, until available seats have 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 2/12/21 via email through Apply Philly Charter.
