Application Process and Deadlines

Our application process for the 2021-2022 school year will kick off on January 19, 2021 and we are accepting applications for new students in grades 1-4.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through the close of the initial application window at 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2021. At that time, should the number of applications received at a given grade exceed the number of available seats at the grade, a lottery will be held on April 5, 2021 to determine admission at that specific grade. For more information about our lottery, please visit the lottery section of the admissions tab.

Any application received after the close of the initial application window (11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2021) will be accepted but will be held until after the conclusion of each grades lottery and will be included on the grade’s respective waitlist, along with any students who were not selected in the lottery.


As seats become available at a given grade, Bridge Prep will go to the waitlist to fill the seat. The waitlist for seats in the 2021-2022 school year will remain active until December 30, 2021 at which time it will close. Waitlists do not carry over from year to year.
