Frequently Asked Questions:

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

The Admission Lottery will be held on Wednesday, March 6, 2024. 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, 395 Columbia Rd, Boston, MA 02125

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. Notifications for lottery results will be posted on our website with your child’s application number and the lottery number received.

Applications will not be accepted via fax.

Tips for applying:

  • Fill out all information. Print neatly and clearly.
  • Verify that the child’s date of birth and grade is 100% correct.
  • Apply for the grade your child will be entering in September 2024.
  • Include working phone numbers only – please give us more than one working phone number.
  • Ensure the address is accurate. Include apartment numbers and 5-digit zip codes.
