Princeton Charter School

Admissions Information

The New Jersey Department of Education has granted our request for a 76-student expansion, phased in over 2 years, (54 students for 2017-18) and the implementation of a weighted lottery system to help better diversify our student population.

Lottery Deadline

Princeton Charter School is accepting registration forms for enrollment in the admissions lottery  for Academic year 2017-18 for kindergarten through grade 8.  The deadline to register for the lottery is Monday, April 3, 2017 by 4:00 PM. The lottery will take place on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 4:00 PM.

Note that Princeton Charter School has extended the deadline to allow for additional outreach and maximum participation in the lottery for the 2017-18 school year.

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.

Lottery Registration

  • There are no entrance exams, interviews, costs, or special requirements.
  • 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.
  • Since more students register for a place in the school than there are spaces available, students are selected for admission by random lottery.
