    Selection for admission will be made through a public lottery, scheduled for the morning of February 7, 2018, 9am, in the auditorium.  Acceptance to Revere, or placement on a wait list, will be determined that morning. Letters of acceptance, or verification of placement on a wait list, will be emailed to all lottery participants to the email address provided on the lottery application on or by February 26, 2018 from Please notify Revere of any email address and address changes so that we may effectively communicate with you.  All communication will be done via email.  Please check junk or spam folders if you did not receive an email by February 26, 2018.

    Please Note: Due to the change from “First Come, First Admitted” to a lottery selection process, there is no need to be the first to turn in an application. As long as you turn in an application between November 1, 2017, and January 12, 2018 your child will be in the lottery for admission.


    Incoming 7th and 8th graders: Depending on class sizes, we may accept incoming 7th and/or 8th grade students for the 2018-2019 school year. Please fill out the online charter lottery application (available November 1, 2017)  or come to Revere if you don't have access to a computer and submit it online in the Main Office. You do not need to bring any documents with you at the time of this application. All 7th and 8th grade applications submitted by the deadline will be selected in a lottery on the morning of February 7, 2018.  Students will be placed on a wait list in the order they are selected in the event that the school has room to accommodate 7th or 8th grade students for the following school year.  There is a good possibility that Revere will not know if there will be space for new 7th and/or 8th graders until July or August.  We will do our best to contact families in the order they are selected from the lottery as soon as we can.
