The admission application cycle for 2018-19 will begin soon. We are currently accepting applications for the current school year (2017-18) for grades 6 and 7.​

For questions, please email Nefta Ramsey at or call her at 617-254-8904 ext. 101.

How and when will I know if my child was accepted?

The Admission Lottery will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017 at Conservatory Lab Charter School. Although applicants are welcome to attend the lottery, attendance is not a requirement for admission. If you do not wish to have your child’s name read or released in public lottery results, please email an “Opt-out” request to or mail it to “Admissions” at Conservatory Lab Charter School, 2120 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester, MA 02124.

Each applicant is assigned a “lottery number” which is then entered into the system for the computerized lottery. A disinterested party initiates the computerized lottery and results are projected on the screen for each grade level and then posted.
Notification of lottery results will be sent to all applicants on Thursday, March 16, 2017.
