FAQ

Applying to Green Street Academy

Enrollment Applications for Green Street Academy will be accepted through 1:00 PM on Saturday, February 3, 2024.  Enrollment Application deadlines will not be extended in the case of inclement weather and/or school closings due to inclement weather or for any other reason.  In order to avoid disappointment and to ensure your child’s inclusion in the lottery draw, please do not wait until the last minute to submit the enrollment application.

To apply for enrollment to Green Street Academy (GSA), a separate Enrollment Application must be completed and submitted for each child you wish to enroll.  Only one application per child will be accepted.  This Enrollment Application is for GSA only.

Getting Informed

It is strongly recommended that interested families attend an Open House, which consists of an information session and school tour.  Open Houses are held prior to the application deadline date.  In order to accommodate working families, both evening and daytime sessions will be made available.  Supervised children are welcome to attend Open Houses and you do not need to RSVP.  If Baltimore City Public Schools are closed or close early due to inclement weather, Open Houses will be cancelled and may or may not be rescheduled.  Due to volume of interest, we are unable to accommodate individual information sessions and school tours. 

Who Can Apply

Enrollment preference is given to residents of Baltimore City.  If your child is selected for enrollment, you will be asked to supply two proofs of residency, one of them is a title, deed, or lease of your residence.

Applications for scholars who live outside of Baltimore City will not be included in the enrollment lottery and will be placed at the end of the waiting list. If the pool of Baltimore City applicants is exhausted and a non-Baltimore City applicant is selected from the waiting list, tuition will apply.  Application must be made by custodial parents or legal guardians only. Enrollment Applications will not be accepted from siblings or any other non-custodial relatives or friends.

Submitting Completed Applications

Be sure to complete the Enrollment Application thoroughly and accurately. Incomplete Enrollment Applications will not be considered. Green Street Academy will not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate information. Inaccuracies, errors, or misrepresentations on the Enrollment Application will adversely affect the applicant’s placement on the acceptance/waiting list.

Enrollment Applications will be accepted in one way:

Late Arriving Applications: Enrollment Applications received after 4:00 PM on February 15, 2023 will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list in the order they are received and will not be included in the lottery draw, should one be necessary.

Enrollment Lottery

If the number of applicants for a given grade does not exceed the number of available spaces, all applicants in that grade will be offered admission to the school.

If the number of Enrollment Applications for a given grade exceeds the number of available spaces, scholars will be selected for admission by random lottery on a grade-by-grade basis. Scholars are selected in the lottery per grade level using the information supplied on the Enrollment Application.  Inaccurate information regarding the applicant’s grade level or age will adversely affect the applicant’s placement on the acceptance/waiting list.

The enrollment lottery will be conducted by staff of Green Street Academy and witnessed by a representative of Baltimore City Public Schools.

The enrollment lottery draw will be held at 6 PM on February 15, 2024 virtually. All interested parties are invited to attend the enrollment lottery draw.
