Under the Illinois Charter schools law, Urban Prep is required to conduct a public lottery. In order for an application to be considered, a student must be a current 8th grader and successfully complete the 8th grade by the summer of 2022. All families will be notified via U.S Mail or Email of the results within one week of the lottery. Students not chosen in the lottery will be placed on a wait list. If additional seats become available in the freshman class, admission to wait listed students will be offered in the order in which they were placed on the wait list. Any non-respondent families will forfeit their student's acceptance or wait list status. Applicants with siblings who are current students will be given priority acceptances to campus of sibling attendance.
*If a student is not in the 8th grade or has not completed the 8th grade, his application will be archived and all information will be stored in our database for the next application cycle.
