How to Apply

Our 2021 lottery has concluded (click here to see results), but you can still submit an application to secure a spot on our wait-list (click here to submit an application).

If you are interested in getting more information, please submit an inquiry request below.

An open lottery ensures that all students have an equal chance to gain entry to our school. Our lottery has two areas in which you can apply; the general education lottery and the special education lottery. If your child has an IEP (an Individualized Education Plan) you should apply through the special education lottery, if your child does not then you should apply through the general education lottery. You cannot apply to both.

Submitting a lottery application does not commit you to anything other than participating in the lottery. However, if you do want to have your child attend Richmond Prep, you must apply through the lottery. You have nothing to lose by submitting a lottery application, and you can still go through the application process for a district school while applying to Richmond Prep. The deadline for district schools has historically been in December, and for Richmond Prep it will be in April.

If you are chosen through the lottery, it is 100% your decision if you want to accept the seat. You will be given a window of time to make your decision to accept the seat or release it. If you accept the seat, there will be a registration process and someone will walk you through everything.

Richmond Prep currently has 108 seats available, 64 6th grade General Education seats, and 44 6th grade Student with Disability seats.

Our 2021-2022 results will be posted shortly after the lottery drawing on April 21st via Zoom (Meeting ID: 896 2848 7915 Passcode: 37cDXG). For those who applied prior to April 1st, the school will be reaching out with enrollment instructions. We are still accepting applications.
