The Urban Choice Charter School will continue to accept enrollment applications throughout the year, however applications received after the lottery date will automatically be put on the wait list.

- Applications are accepted between January 2, 2017 and April 7, 2017.
- Enrollment for new students is conducted by lottery from the pool of applications received.
- The Urban Choice Charter School uses a non-partisan, third-party firm to conduct the lottery process.

- Families with children who are identified as siblings (brothers and/or sisters residing at the same residence) will receive first preference.

over children from outside these boundaries.
