Notes About Lottery and Waiting List Policies and Procedures

Boston Collegiate Charter School gives enrollment preference by law to siblings of currently attending Boston Collegiate Charter School students as well as residents of the City of Boston.

On the waiting list document, the “Original Lottery Number” listed is the number that was drawn during the lottery process.  The “Waiting List Number” shows the current waiting list position for the child taking into account sibling and resident preferences provided on the application.  A status of “Accepted” means that a seat will be offered for the 2017-2018 school year.  A status of “Waiting List” means that the student is on the waiting list for a seat that may become available in the future.

Upon being offered a seat for admission at Boston Collegiate Charter School, proof of sibling or resident status is required in order to keep the preferences applied and accept the offer for admission.  As Boston Collegiate Charter School obtains more information throughout the spring and summer about offers that are not accepted, the school will continue to make offers to students on the waiting list in the order shown for each grade level.  Note also that the relative position on the waiting list for a student may change at any time as more information is obtained by the school about applicants who may or may not have a sibling or Boston resident preference.  All names are listed on the waiting list document with the exception of those applicants who requested not to be listed.

If you have any questions about the lottery results or your position on the waiting list, please contact Teresa Rodriguez at 617-282-6710 ext. 126 or

Sibling Preference

Our Sibling Preference Policy allows siblings of currently attending students to receive priority over non-sibling applicants. For an entering 5th grader, a spot in the 5th grade is reserved for siblings who submit an application. For siblings applying to grades 6, 7 and 8, priority is given on the waiting list. However, despite the sibling preference, all siblings MUST submit an application and participate in the lottery. If we do not receive an application, siblings cannot be enrolled or placed on the waiting list.

Siblings must provide proof of their common biological parent (through birth certificates from both siblings, a paternity order from the court, etc.) OR proof of a legal adoption to receive the sibling preference. If proof is not received by the application deadline, the student will be entered into the lottery as a non-sibling applicant.
