DCPS has six selective high schools that admit students based on specific criteria, or eligibility requirements. Students eligible to enroll in grades 9-12 can apply, but only students who meet a selective high school’s requirements will be considered eligible for admission.
To apply to a selective high school, a My School DC lottery application must be submitted. No paper applications will be accepted. Please note, admission to a selective high school is based on students meeting specific criteria, not random lottery.
