SES Founding Family members, children of SES staff, and siblings of children currently enrolled at SES, and students who reside in the Sabillasville district have priority for placement in available spots, but must still submit an application for the lottery.

If you have siblings in the lottery and one child is selected and you accept their seat the other siblings will be given priority, but are not guaranteed enrollment.

Upon registering you will receive an email. 


The lottery will take place on March 22.  On March 22 you will receive notification by email if your child(ren) were selected in the lottery.

If your child(ren) are placed on the waitlist, you will receive notification indicating their ranking.
