All Metro enrollments are through a non-selective lottery process. Our lottery is conducted each March for the following fall.

Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a waitlist. We will pull from our wait list for subsequent lottery drawings once the pool of applications received by the deadline is exhausted.

Lottery results will be sent by email beginning in March.
