1. Application for Admission –  For the 2023-2024 School Year, we have 52 open seats for Grade 3 and 78 open seats for Grade 4. Apply here to be entered into our lottery. 

2. Lottery – Because we are not selective, if there are more applicants than spaces available, students will be entered into a lottery and chosen at random. Entry into our lottery is contingent upon the application being complete and submitted by February 28, 2023 by 2:00 PM. Paul Robeson’s lottery will be held on March 1, 2023 at 12:00 PM. Students not selected in the lottery will be placed on our waitlist.

3. Enrollment –  If a student is selected, parents must submit the completed enrollment packet on line by the date listed on the letter and prior to the first day of school or the student’s seat will be forfeited. An acceptance letter does not guarantee enrollment.
