Any student that lives in the city of Philadelphia and is in grades Kindergarten through 8th can apply. Students should demonstrate an interest in learning both English and Spanish; parents or guardians must agree to these terms and sign a statement to that effect in order to enroll. After applying, students will be entered into a lottery and selected randomly. Students with siblings currently enrolled are given preference for admission. After the lottery is complete, the selected students and parents are invited to attend a new student orientation, typically held in May. There, they will complete registration and provide academic transcripts and other records from schools previously attended, including medical records.
