You may submit an online application at applyphillycharter.org, or visit us at 2830 N American Street, Philadelphia, PA 19133 to receive assistance in completing the application. Additional assistance is provided by calling 1-800-891-3999. Admission is open to all appropriately aged children who reside in Philadelphia.
If more applications are received than there are seats available, the school will hold a randomized lottery to determine which applicants are offered a seat for enrollment. All applications submitted within the application window will be referred to the lottery, assuming an application is not a duplicate submission and is otherwise eligible to attend the school.
The lottery for the 2023-2024 school year will be conducted on February 08, 2023. Priority will be given to applicants with siblings, followed by applicants who live in zip codes 19133 and 19134. The lottery will be conducted by the school on the Apply Philly Charter system.
Upon application submission, each applicant is automatically assigned a random lottery number. When the lottery is run, it will take the following into account: first, the priority group an applicant falls into, and, second, the applicant’s random lottery number. Seats will first be offered to applicants who fall into the first priority group in order of lowest random lottery number to highest. The lottery will then offer seats to applicants in the second, third, etc. priority groups in order of random lottery numbers until the number of available seats has been exhausted. Applicants not offered a seat through the lottery will be waitlisted in order of their priority group first, and their random lottery number second.
Applicants who were offered a seat through the lottery will be notified on February 10, 2023 via email through Apply Philly Charter. Applicants who were offered a seat through the lottery will have until February 24, 2023, to accept their seat offer on Apply Philly Charter by clicking “accept” in their Apply Philly Charter accounts. Offers will expire after 11:59 PM if no action has been taken on them. Families will now only have 14 days to accept or decline an offer in Apply Philly Charter.
School office staff will contact applicants regarding the next steps and required paperwork to complete enrollment. Applicants will be required to submit all enrollment paperwork to the school by March 31, 2023. Enrollment paperwork will not be collected through Apply Philly Charter.
