The Prospect Hill Academy admissions process is open to all Massachusetts residents and is non-selective and non-discriminatory. Governed by Massachusetts charter school laws, admission is lottery based with preference given to Somerville and Cambridge residents and those with siblings in the school. Below is a detailed outline of the various steps in the application process.
There are no academic requirements to be admitted to the School and no testing is administered prior to admission. However, accepted students are assigned to a specific grade only after completing a grade level assessment.
* Twins are considered separate applicants. Sibling preference only applies if one child is already attending the school at the time the other applies.
