Wait List Adjustments
As we learn of families that exit we will make offers in the order established by the waiting list. It is not possible for us to predict the number of students who may move, or transfer to another school. In the event that we are able to make an offer of enrollment applicants would be contacted first by email, then by phone to alert the family of a pending offer of enrollment.
As a reminder you can watch for adjustments to the wait list on this page. At the bottom you will find results by LotteryID and Results by Grade.
If your child moves from a wait list to accepted status you will receive notification via the email address that was used during the application process. 

The waiting list was adjusted on September 17th to account for applicants who had a change of preference when their sibling started attending BFCCPS.  The current waiting list can be viewed on this Google Document, please note that each grade is posted on a separate page of the spreadsheet. You will need your Original Lottery ID in order to check the results.

The results of the 2021-2022 Enrollment Lottery for the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School can be found below. Please note the following:

  • You will need the Unique Lottery ID of the student(s)’s to check their status. 
  • Students with codes beginning with an “A” have been accepted pending verification of their residency, preference type, and date of birth.
  • Students with a code beginning with a “W” are on the waitlist.

The wait list for the 2021-2022 school year will be maintained until February 15, 2022.

In accordance with our Enrollment Policy Waitlist status can change at any time; for example, if a sibling of a child on the waitlist is enrolled and currently attends the school; or if a family on the waitlist has a change of regional or non regional status. Once a change in preference has occurred, the waitlist will be adjusted in accordance with the original lottery order.  

Any questions, please contact Joanne Basile, Communications Coordinator, via email at jbasile@bfccps.org.

Learn More About BFCCPS

In a traditional year, BFCCPS hosts information sessions so that interested families can meet us in person, learn more about the school and have a building tour.  As a result of the continuing health crisis, in person meetings will not be possible this year so we’ve adjusted our plans accordingly.

This year, we have arranged for videos featuring our staff, parents, teachers and even a BFCCPS alumna to help you learn more about the BFCCPS Experience. While these videos can’t truly replicate our traditional face to face events we hope that our enthusiasm for the school is evident.

 If you would like to watch all the videos in sequence, you can visit this YouTube playlist otherwise, you can watch selected videos here on our website
