Admissions & Enrollment
Urban Choice Charter School is a free, public school that enrolls students in grades K-8. Students who will turn five years old on or before December 1st of the school year for which enrollment is sought may submit an application. When the school is fully enrolled, Urban Choice maintains a waitlist. Both the applications and the waitlist are kept for one year. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be accepted between December 1, 2021 and April 1, 2022.
Generally, Urban Choice seats are very limited and the number of students who apply is greater than the number of seats available. When this occurs, the school holds a lottery in accordance with its Charter. We use a non-partisan, third-party firm to conduct the lottery process. During any school closure period pursuant to an Executive Order of the Governor related to the COVID-19 crisis, the lottery will be held remotely by videoconferencing and the public shall have an opportunity to view it live. In this event, the notice of the lottery will also be posted on our website and the videoconference shall be recorded and later transcribed.
Urban Choice shall not discriminate against or limit the admission of any student on any unlawful basis, including on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, race, creed, national origin, religion or ancestry. Urban Choice may not require any action by a student or family (such as an admission test, interview essay, attendance at an information session, etc.) in order for an applicant to either receive or submit an application for admission.
