No. You must call the Central Office for an administrator to assist you.

How do I decide what school to apply to?
We encourage students and families to visit the campuses, either for a tour or during one of the showcase nights.

How are students selected?
All applications submitted by the deadline will be entered into the Phase One review to determine eligibility. Those eligible students will be notified by late January that they are moving onto Phase Two review that may involve an audition and/or interview at some campuses. Students who pass the Phase Two review will then be entered into a lottery.

How is the lottery conducted?
The lottery is conducted in accordance with pre-approved guidelines. The online system generates the list of applicants that are to be awarded seats with an ordered wait list.

When will parents be notified if they are selected to participate in a program?
Parents will receive notification by email if their child has been selected once the lottery has been completed.

What if my child is not selected for the initial lottery process?
Once the initial emails have been sent to those students who are accepted, parents must accept the seats. If additional seats become available, students in the waiting pool will be offered spaces using the waiting list.
