Families need to enter a valid email address and create a password to create a free account. The application also features a mobile friendly platform. The account will need to be monitored for information regarding submission status and acceptance/waitlist notifications.

All applications must be completed online. The order in which the application is submitted does not impact the selection process. It does not matter whether a family submits an application on the first day or the last day since the lottery is a random, computer-based drawing. The application is available in multiple languages.

The official lottery will be run at the end of January 2023.

Kindergarten families will be notified by email upon completing the lottery of their acceptance or waitlist status. All other families of students in grades 1-8 will receive an email about their waitlist status and will be offered seats as they become open through the summer months.
