New York State law requires that children must have turned 5-years-old by December 31st of the year they are admitted to kindergarten.

You must submit an application by April 1st, 2019 for your child to be included in Bronx ASCS lottery for the 2019-2020 academic year.

New York State law requires that we offer the following admission preference to applicants of Bronx ASCS in the following manner:
1 - Returning students
2 - Students of siblings
3 - Staff preference (maximum 15%)

NYSED Weighted Lottery Generator is designed to give slightly better chances for admission to a subset of educationally disadvantaged students. Bronx ASCS will use a weighted lottery for English Language Learners (ELLs) and Multilingual Learners (MLLs). This gives additional weight to ELL and MLL students but does not reserve or set aside seats for students in the preference category.
