Enrollment Information

Like all charter public schools in Massachusetts, Boston Renaissance enrolls new students through a random lottery.  Enrollment in the lottery is done online, through the Boston Charter School Application, a website created for all Boston charter schools, where families can apply to multiple schools at once, rather than submitting applications separately for each school.

Each year at Boston Renaissance, roughly 120 seats open at our K1 grade level (Pre-Kindergarten, students who turn 4 years old by August 31st). Families with children entering K1 next year can apply through the Common Application and will automatically be entered into our annual enrollment lottery.

In addition to the new K1 class, we hold a lottery for students entering grades K2, 1, 2, 3, and 4. However, students in these grades are enrolled in the school only as seats become available through student attrition:  Each year a small number of students leave Boston Renaissance, opening spots for new students to enter the school. So, families with children entering grades K2 through 4th grade may also use the Boston Charter School Application website to apply to Boston Renaissance, but the number of students admitted in grades K2, 1, 2, 3, and 4 will be significantly smaller than the number of new students entering K1.

Under state law, siblings of existing students are admitted to the school if they have been entered into the lottery. All remaining seats are offered to students by the order in which their names were selected in the lottery. The student wait-list is also formed by order of lottery selection.
