BCSC Lottery

How BCSC's Lottery Works

A public charter school lottery determines the order in which students are granted admission into BCSC.  Once all available spaces are filled, names are drawn to determine the order of the waitlist.  Students will be admitted from the waitlist as spaces become available in each grade.

Preference is given to siblings of enrolled and admitted students and to students residing in NYC Community School District 7.
