The Application to enter the enrollment lottery for 2023-2024 school year goes live November 15.


The Lottery Process

Our enrollment is based on a public lottery held on February 28th at 9am in the Community Room at MCCPS.  After the lottery, a letter will be sent notifying you of your statusStudents that do not get a seat in the initial lottery are placed on the Wait-List. As families make decisions about whether to attend, seats may become available. When open seats occur, we call from the Wait-List to fill the seat in the order the Lottery determined. As our wait-lists DO NOT roll over from year to year, families must re-apply. If you apply after February 15th, your child’s application will be put at the end of our waitlist for potential openings. Please see our admission policy in our charter for more information.

Primary Lottery will be held February 28th, 2023 at 11am

Secondary Lottery will be held on June 1st, 2023.
