Admissions Lottery Process
The lottery for 2023-24 admissions will be live on the FA youtube channel at 3:00 pm, March 9, 2023.
Because the number of applicants always exceeds the number of available spaces at Foundation Academies, all student applications are placed into a computerized, random admissions lottery.
FA is a public charter school open to all students.
The random lottery process ensures that students are selected without regard to academic ability, gender, race, religion, national origin, household income, or disability/special needs of the students or the parents/guardians.
There are no costs or fees to apply.
There is NO ADVANTAGE to applying more than once – the system rejects duplicate applications.
Behind the scenes: how the lottery works
Your child applied for a seat in the 5th grade, and space is available!
If space is available in that grade AND their lottery number is selected in the lottery drawing, he/she would be admitted.
You applied, but no space is available in the 5th grade.
If no space is available in the 5th grade, your child will be placed on the Wait List.
If a space becomes available any time during the school year, your child could be admitted.
Your child will remain on the Wait List until the end of the school year, at which time the list expires.
PLEASE NOTE: The wait list DOES NOT roll over: you must complete A NEW APPLICATION for EACH student you wish to enroll for the following school year.
