• Open Enrollment

    Richmond City Public Schools’s lottery process, open enrollment, offers school choice for students who want to attend a school outside of their residential zone. 

    Students may apply to up to three out-of-zone schools; seat offers are determined via a random lottery that is run each spring. Open enrollment seats vary by school and grade depending upon school capacity, staff, and in-zone enrollment.

    Applications for open enrollment can be submitted beginning on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 8:00 AM. Applications must be submitted no later than Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 4:30 PM in order to be entered in the open enrollment lottery. Late applications will be added to their respective waitlist in the order they are submitted.
