Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in Boston Collegiate Charter School!  Our school is currently in our 22nd year. Our mission is simple yet ambitious: to prepare each student for college.

Our lottery for the 2019-2020 school year will be held on Tuesday, March 10th, with a snow date of Wednesday, March 11th. 

Starting in late September 2019, we will accept applications for students who are currently in grades 4-9 during the 2019-2020 school year to enroll in grades 5-10 starting in late August 2020.  We work with most other charters schools in Boston and use the www.applybostoncharters.org website which is run by School Mint.  All families (except those already enrolled) must reapply each year to be part of the lottery.  We no longer roll over our lottery lists. 

Siblings of current students are offered first preference in our lottery.  Birth certificates or adoption/guardianship documents are required prior to our lottery.  Please forward those to Teresa Rodriguez, Director of Family and Community Relations, at TRodriguez@bostoncollegiate.org

Residents of the city of Boston are offered second priority.  Typically, we do not have room to accept students who reside outside of the city of Boston.  Proof of residency is required. Boston Collegiate abides by the state McKinney Vento Act which allows homeless students or children who have lost their housing have the right to immediate enrollment in school even if they do not have the documentation usually required to enroll.

We invite you to visit our school to learn more about our academic program prior to our lottery in March 2020.  Visiting is not required and offers no advantage in our random public lottery. Please feel free to attend our tours with family or friends.  Reservations are not required!
