The Learning Community Charter School (“LCCS”) is chartered to serve Pre-K 4 through 8th grade. The school is open to families living in Jersey City.
Admission to LCCS is conducted through a yearly lottery. The Lottery determines who gets admitted for the spaces available,and, if not admitted in what order the placement will be on the waiting list.
Enrollment applications will be available October 1st, 2015 through January 8th, 2016, excluding weekends, holidays and school closures. The applications are available at the school's front office Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-5:00 PM.
As openings occur (mainly in late summer), applicants from the waiting list will be called. Siblings of currently enrolled students receive priority, followed by non-sibling applicants in accordance with their position on the waiting list.
When messages have been left at all contact numbers and emails and the applicant does not respond within 48 hours (excluding weekends), or if they decline, they will lose their place on the list and the next child will be asked.
After applicant has responded to our acceptance offer the applicant will have 24 hrs from the time of response to accept or decline. It is the responsibility of the applicant’s parent or guardian to make sure that all contact information on the application is current and the school is notified if contact information changes.
LCCS also conducts Open Houses for the public; generally one Saturday in November and December and one weekday evening and one weekday morning.
