Lottery (only grades K, 6, 9)

If your student is entering grades K, 6 or 9, the lottery application for the 2019-2020 school year is now open on SchoolMint. To enter our post-lottery waitlist for the ’18-’19 school year, simply sign up and create an account to get started on your application. You may easily check and/or review your application status at any time by signing into your SchoolMint account. All applicants will receive their lottery results electronically via email and/or text within 24-72 hours after the April lottery.

Waitlist (all other grades)

For students applying post-lottery or to grades other than K, 6, and 9, the waitlist application for the 2019-2020 school year is now open on SchoolMint. Simply sign up and create an account to get started on your application. You can easily check and/or review your waitlist status at any time by signing into your SchoolMint account. Students admitted from our rolling waitlist will be contacted electronically via email and/or phone, so please be sure to update your contact information if it changes. As your student rises to each intake year (6th or 9th), please submit a new application to be considered for the lottery.

Please note, waitlists are established by qualifying preferences, and/or waitlist application timestamp.
