Admissions Information

The Learning Community Charter School, LCCS serves 639 students in Pre-K 4 through 8th Grade.  The school is open to families living in Jersey City.  

Your child is required to be 4 years old by October 1st, to apply for PK-4. Your child is required to be 5 years old by October 1st, to apply for Kindergarten.

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 2nd, 2023 through January 26th, 2024, at the school's website www.lccsnj.org.

The deadline to submit the applications is January 26th, 2023 at 3:00 P.M. No exceptions.

As openings occur (mainly in late summer, but throughout the school year), 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, if the applicant does not respond within 48 hours, or if they decline, they will lose their place on the list and the next child will be asked. 

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. Please click on Open House Schedule Link for additional information.

Please note that if you elect not to come to the open houses we will not conduct private school tours later in the year.
