Princeton Charter School

Admissions Information

  • Since more students register for a place in the school than there are spaces available, students are selected for admission by random lottery.
  • There are no entrance exams, interviews, costs, or special requirements.
  • We value diversity as a critical part of our school culture. We welcome all applicants from Princeton. Seats are available at all grade levels, but Kindergarten is the main point of entry.
  • Princeton Charter School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, or national origin.
  • Residents domiciled within the Princeton Public School District are given priority over out-of-district residents. Click here to check which addresses fall within the Princeton Public School District.

Out-of District Applicants

  • Note: Out-of-district names will not be assigned a lottery number nor drawn in the lottery unless there are not enough district residents registered for the lottery.  We will keep all registration forms in the event it is necessary to draw from out-of-district to fill the seats at each grade level. (i.e. if you are an out-of-district applicant, you will only receive a lottery number if there are not enough in-district students registered for the lottery.)
