The Children’s Aid College Prep Charter School has made available its 2013-2014 lottery application. The lottery system for this charter school located in the Morrisania section of the Bronx is open to all students but will once again prioritize students with specific needs or vulnerabilities.

As with other lotteries, all applicants will receive one entry for applying. Additional entries will be given to those students who meet the following criteria:

  • 1. Students who come from single-parent households
  • 2. Students from households below the NY self-sufficiency standard
  • 3. Students who have not attended a full-day kindergarten
  • 4. Students who are English language learners
  • 5. Students who have been involved in the child welfare system

For example, a student who is from a single-parent household and who has been involved in the child welfare system will receive a total of three entries.

The Children’s Aid College Prep Charter School welcomed 120 students in kindergarten and first grade in its inaugural year and will eventually serve approximately 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

The school is accepting applications for grades K-2 through Monday, April 1, 2013 and the lottery will be held on April 29 at 5:00 p.m. at Children’s Aid College Prep, 1919 Prospect Avenue in the Bronx.
