Admissions Process

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION FOR 2015-16 FOR NINTH AND TENTH GRADERS IS OPEN NOW

The enrollment capacity per grade is 100 students; there is no "first-come first-served" concept.  If more than 100 students apply for admission, STEMCivics will hold a lottery and a waitlist will be created.

Lottery and Waitlist Procedures

In the event of the need for a lottery (more than 100 students have applied) at the end of an enrollment period, admission preference shall be granted to applicants in the following manner:

For the 2015-16 school year
If more than 100 students who live in Trenton apply for admission, a lottery will be held. If the number of applicants from outside Trenton results in more than 100 applications, then a lottery will be held, with the students who live in Trenton guaranteed admission. For example, if 80 Trenton students and 40 students from outside Trenton apply, all 80 Trenton students are enrolled and a lottery is held for the 40 students residing outside Trenton for the remaining 20 slots.

Beginning with the 2015-16 school year

  • First preference will be given to returning students, who will automatically be assigned a space within STEMCivics.
  • Second preference will be given to siblings of students already enrolled. For definition purposes, “siblings” are two or more children that are related either by birth by means of the same father or mother, by legal adoption, or as designated by foster sibling status.
  • Third preference for admission is for students who reside in the district
  • Any remaining slots shall be available to applicants residing outside the district.
