Welcome back students and families! We're excited for the new school year.



State law mandates that charter school enrollment be governed by lottery. Children who are not selected are placed on a waiting list.


We will be selecting students for Kindergarten spots at both sites.

We don’t anticipate having many openings in grades 1st through 7th at either site, but we will draw a waiting list in case spots become available. 


Lottery Dates and Times 
Wednesday, February 8, 2023

This year, our lotteries are being held virtually. Our Awbury and Fernhill lotteries will be conducted back-to-back in this virtual event. Attendance at the lottery is optional and has no impact on your child's chance of being admitted.  Please be advised that due to us having to conduct the lottery virtually, we will be unable to provide individual families with their lottery position during this event. All families will receive notification of their status via the email address they provided on their Apply Philly Charter applications on Friday, February 10. We appreciate your understanding in this new lottery format!

Attending the lottery is optional.

At both lotteries we will start with kindergarten and work our way up through the grades. We anticipate that the lottery will take no more than 45 minutes. If you choose not to attend or if you are unable to attend, you will be notified of the results through the mail. We will also post lottery results on this webpage.



We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-2024 school year.
