Public Enrollment Lottery
To ensure equal access to enrollment, Provident Charter School will conduct a public enrollment lottery annually with applications received during the open enrollment period.

On the lottery date, one of the following scenarios will occur:
(1) If student applications do not exceed the number of available seats in a grade, all applicants will be given a space in the grade, or
(2) If student applications exceed the number of available seats in a grade, a lottery will be conducted for that grade with preference first being given to:
1. Students who have a sibling currently enrolled
2. Children who are residents of the City of Pittsburgh
Any students not receiving a space will be placed on the waiting list in the order their names are drawn. All applications received after February 29, 2020 will be placed on the waiting list in the order they are received.
