Students working on a project together

All TECCS students are selected by public lottery. Based on the lottery results, applicants are either accepted or placed on the waiting list. Wait-listed families are notified as seats in the appropriate grade open up. The lottery determining admission is held on the 2nd Thursday in January..

2018-2019 Lottery Information

All 2018-2019 applications (grades K-8) must be received no later than January 4, 2018. The lottery for the 2018-2019 school year will be held on January 11th, 2018 at 6:30pm in the TECCS Dining Hall.  To apply for the 2018-2019 school year please fill out an Application Form (Español) . Applications are also available at Open Houses, recruitment events, and upon request by contacting the school.

The school must fill its spots with Jersey City applicants before it can accept any out of town applicants. Additionally, in an effort to keep family members together, siblings are given preference in the lottery. No other preference is given to any student in the enrollment process for any reason.

Please note: All incoming Kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before October 1st of their Kindergarten year to be eligible for enrollment.

You can still submit an application after January 4th. Doing so will place your child on the waiting list for the 2018-2019 academic year..

During the lottery, names are drawn to offer places in the 2018-2019 kindergarten class to 44 applicants. All other applicants are placed on the waiting list, in order determined by the lottery drawing.

Families do not have to be present during the lottery.  Our Family School Association (FSA) will call accepted Kindergarten families the next day.  All other results will be posted on this website, by Wednesday, January 17th, 2018.
