2021-2022 Imagine Schools Military Lottery

Please note the 2021-2022 School year lottery is now closed.


The 2021-2022 Imagine Schools Military Lottery will open from March 22, 2021 12:01 am – June 1, 2021 11:59 pm. 

***Note: This lottery is for the following:

  • Students that are dependents of Military Personnel with Active Assigned Orders to Joint Base Andrews and live in Prince George’s County
  • Students that are dependents of Military Personnel that resides on Joint Base Andrews

Please review the information below to ensure that you have the correct documents to successfully submit your application:

  • You must obtain a Prince George’s County Public School student number for your child (this number is required to complete the charter school lottery application); to obtain a student number contact the boundary school assigned for your home address to make arrangements to obtain a student number. Please email Tina Chavis at johnson@imagineschools.org if you are currently residing outside of Prince Georges County, Maryland for additional information for obtaining a student number.
  • Maryland State Law requires that a child be 5 years of age on or before September 1 to enter Kindergarten. We must abide by this law; therefore, if your child will be 5 years of age AFTER September 1 you cannot apply for lottery placement to a Charter School for Kindergarten.

(Attention:  if you applied with Prince George’s County Public Schools during their open enrollment for Specialty Schools and you meet the requirements of a military family, please participate in this lottery.)


Here is the link for Military Families to request a student ID# from their boundary/neighborhood  school (only bonafide PG County Residents).:
