Choice Registration Program

  • Through the Choice Registration Process, families have the opportunity to apply for placement at a school other than their neighborhood school.

    Please review the procedures below regarding Choice, and click on the link to view the application. Please note that approval of Choice placement is not guaranteed and is based upon space availability.

  • Requests from the following schools have been pre-accepted. For those who have requested a pre-accepted school, please check your email after 4:30pm for a confirmation letter or expect a mailed letter within the week to confirm your position. Families of pre-accepted Choice placements must respond to this confirmation letter by April 1st to secure their position.

    Families of Choice Applications received an email with a link to a Zoom meeting to attend the lottery virtually at 5:30pm. If you have not received this link, please email before 4:30pm. You are not required to view the lottery to receive a placement or waitlist position.

    All families will receive a confirmation email by March 24th, either offering a placement in their requested school, or notifying you of your scholar's waitlist number.
