    Lottery Admission  

    If the number of applicants exceeds the capacity of the incoming 6th grade class (180 students), a two-tiered lottery system will commence.

    • Tier 1: Eligible GT applicants who have a CoGAT score at or above the 97th percentile on at least one subtest (verbal, quantitative, or non-verbal) are entered into the first random lottery. 


    • Tier 2: If there are remaining seats after the first lottery, the second lottery will commence for all other eligible GT applicants. 


    The lottery system is computer randomized and does not favor students by any other factor than their CoGAT score.
