The FACS Lottery was held annually in March, after the close of Open Enrollment. The 2023 lottery will be held on March 20th at 5pm. See a copy of this year's recording below.
Annually, a Zoom link is available for families to watch the process, if they desire. Families are NOT required to attend the lottery to be eligible for enrollment. Admissions notifications will be sent out via SchoolMint shortly after the lottery concludes. The date and link will be publicized in late February.
Please note, the live lottery process does not display any personal identifying information to the public. You will not have confirmation of an offer announced during the webinar. Families will receive admissions offers or waitlist status updates via email or text immediately following the process.
