For kindergarten, the lottery determines the students for the upcoming school year. For grades 1-12, it determines the wait list pool for the upcoming year. In order to participate in the lottery, an application must be completed online (when available) or completed and returned to the front office.

Along with completed form, families need to submit: a copy of birth certificate, current utility bill (dated within 30 days), school record and special education records such as IEP or 504 documentation.

Waiting List

Students who apply to the school are not successful in gaining enrolment through the lottery are placed on a wait list in the order in which they were drawn during the lottery. Any family that is on the waitlist when the new enrollment year begins is encouraged to reapply. A new lottery is conducted on a yearly basis; it is not carried over from year to year.
