OUR ADMISSIONS PROCESS

Thank you so much for your interest in Burns Science and Technology Charter School. Burns Science & Technology Charter School is a tuition-free, nonprofit K - 12 public charter school with a concentration in EiSTEAM and project-based learning. Students are accepted regardless of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, religious preference, homelessness, disability, handicap, or a language other than English. Our school has grown rapidly in recent years, and we frequently have a waiting list for all grades. When applications exceed the number of seats available for any given grade, to ensure an impartial admissions process, Burns Sci-Tech utilizes Lotterease, a software system that specializes in the student selection process for charter schools.
In accordance with our Charter, Burns Sci-Tech will continue to give preference to students: (1) with a sibling that currently attends Burns Sci-Tech, (2) with a parent who is a member of the Burns Sci-Tech administration, faculty, staff, or school board, (3) with a parent who serves on active duty in the U.S. military
Be sure to provide a current email address with your application as families will receive updated communications about their child’s acceptance or current position on the waiting list via the email provided during the application process. If a space becomes available at after the lottery is concluded, students are admitted from the waiting list created by Lotterease.
If your student is admitted to Burns Sci-Tech for the upcoming school year, you must verify your intent to send your child to Burns Sci-Tech for the 2023-2024 school year within three days. If you do not respond or have made other educational plans for your child, the next child on the waitlist will be be accepted.
