How the Enrollment Process Works

All eligible children of families who have at least one child currently attending LCP receive priority admission. Families who do not have at least one child currently attending LCP but who have had at least one child complete 1 year at LCP will have second priority. All other openings are filled by lottery. When all the slots are full, we will begin an active wait pool. Any applicants who met the application deadline but were not accepted because classes were full will be put in the wait pool and selected using a lottery system. Any applications received after the application deadline will go on the wait pool after the first group is placed on the list. Any applications that are incomplete will not be considered.

Priority alumni status will be determined as follows:

  • Previous child has completed 3 consecutive years at LCP

  • Previous child has completed 2 consecutive years at LCP

  • Previous child has completed 1 year at LCP.

When You Can Expect to be Notified

Families will be notified by email in mid March.

How the Wait Pool Works

If and when movement occurs in classes, the opening will be filled by lottery from the wait pool. The family has two days to decide whether they wish to take the slot before we offer it to the next family in the wait pool.
