During any school year’s open enrollment period, each of the grades, Kindergarten – 8th Grade, is subject to the lottery process. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings at any particular grade, the lottery process will be required. It is possible that no grade levels will require a lottery, resulting in all applicants being offered admission to the Oak Hill Montessori Community School. It is also possible that every level would require a lottery process depending on the number of applications submitted.

If necessary, all families with applications requiring a lottery will be notified by email of the lottery date. The lottery procedure date for the 2024-’25 school year is Thursday, February 1st, 2024 at 10:00am, which takes place at OHMCS.

Students names will be chosen one at a time up to the maximum number of openings for any given grade. The students who are not chosen for admission through the lottery process will be placed on a waiting list in the order their names are drawn. All families going through the lottery process will be notified of results accordingly.

Please note that at times, a student can not only move up the waitlist, but also down. If a child moves down the waitlist it is due to a student becoming enrolled at Oak Hill Montessori Community School and his/her siblings moving up the list as per instructed by state law.
