Note: Out-of-district names will not be assigned a lottery number nor drawn in the lottery unless there are not enough in-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.)

Weighted Lottery

In order to promote greater socio-economic diversity at Princeton Charter School, we offer a Weighted Lottery. Any family that can provide evidence of one of the following criteria will have his/her child's lottery number placed into the lottery twice rather than once.

  • The child already qualifies for free/reduced lunch at his/her current public school.
  • The child lives in Princeton public housing.
  • The child lives in Section 8 housing.
  • The child or guardian qualifies for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits

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.
