Lottery Preferences for The Bronx ASCS:

New York State law requires that children must have turned 5-years-old by December 31st of the year they are admitted to kindergarten

You must submit an application by April 1st for your child to be included in Bronx ASCS lottery for the next academic school year.

A public charter school lottery determines the order in which students are granted admission into The Bronx ASCS. 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.

New York State law requires that we offer the following admission preference to applicants of Bronx ASCS in the following manner:
1 - Returning students
2 - Students of siblings
3 - Staff preference (maximum 15%)
4 - Students who live within CSD 8
5 - Students who live outside of CSD 8

NYSED Weighted Lottery Generator is designed to give slightly better chances for admission to a subset of educationally disadvantaged students. Bronx ASCS will use a weighted lottery for English Language Learners (ELLs) and Multilingual Learners (MLLs). This gives additional weight to ELL and MLL students but does not reserve or set aside seats for students in the preference category.
