If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available seats available for the upcoming year, a lottery will be held. The date for the 2023 is scheduled for February 23rd. Information on viewing the lottery on this date will be shared prior to this date. This is the same date to determine the order of sibling preference as well. Siblings of currently enrolled PSPA students will have priority in the lottery.
If your child does not initially receive a seat at PSPA by means of the lottery, that does not mean your child will not get a seat for the 2023-2024 school year. Seats will open up prior to the start of the school year, especially in the four weeks leading up to the new school year. Please do not get discouraged if your child is placed on the waitlist. You will be able to login to view your child’s status at any time. Additionally, staff will not be able to foresee the likelihood of your child getting a seat for the upcoming school year, if your child does not get a seat in the lottery.
