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 10, 2021

This year, our lotteries are being held virtually due to the City of Philadelphia's restrictions on indoor gatherings. 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 12. We appreciate your understanding in this new lottery format!


Paul Vande Stouwe- Assessment and Accountability Manager (he/him/his) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
