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

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

  1. 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 if you are currently residing outside of Prince Georges County, Maryland for additional information for obtaining a student number.
  2. 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.
  3. Military families can contact Sunny Babauta Lee at or 301-981-9211 with questions about the lottery.

(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.)
