We encourage parents to contact our Executive Director with questions regarding enrollment. 

Our lottery was held on March 19th, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. 


Most of our classes have waitlist for the 2021-2022 school year, but we encourage you to fill out the form below if you would like to be added to our waitlist for the 2021-2022 school year.

How To Apply:

We will be using a third-party system, Lotterease, to run our enrollment lottery/waitlist for transparency and fairness. Since Lotterease is an independent system, the school staff does not have the ability to manipulate or adjust the lottery outcome.  In addition, all activity that takes place with your application is tracked in a history log that you can view at any time by logging into the parent portal.
