BFCCPS Expansion

For the 2019-2020 School year, BFCCPS will offer 302 new openings.  The BFCCPS Expansion is the best chance for local applicants to secure enrollment at our school!  

We will be adding two new classrooms for Grades Kindergarten through Grade 5 as we open our brand new 72,000 square foot school.  92 spaces will be offered for Kindergarten and 42 new spaces will be offered in all grades Grades One through Five. Applications for Grade Six through Eight will be accepted as openings occur or will receive a wait list position. Learn more on this BFCCPS Expansion Brief.

Applications will be available starting on November 1, 2018.


Enrollment Lottery

Priority in the lottery is given first to siblings of current students, then to residents in the BFCCPS region, then to residents of Massachusetts outside of the BFCCPS region.  Applicants must be a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at the time of application to be considered for enrollment, and must reside in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts while attending the school.  

Kindergarten entrance age is five by August 31 of the year of entry. BFCCPS will request reasonable proof of age related to this requirement prior to an offer of admission is made.

Once a student is accepted, they need not reapply as their spot is protected for as long as they attend the school.  If a child has not been accepted and is on the waiting list, you will need to re-apply each year as the waiting list is not held from year to year.  The enrollment lottery for the 2019-2020 school year will take place on Wednesday March 6th.
