Enrolling at Drew Charter School

Thank you for your interest in Drew Charter School. Drew is a public charter school that serves students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade who reside in the Atlanta Public Schools district. To be eligible to attend Drew, a parent/guardian of a prospective student must submit an application during the annual  lottery application window. Seats are awarded by lottery in order of the school’s enrollment priorities.

Drew uses a weighted lottery to increase the likelihood of serving more students from economically disadvantaged families. This is in alignment with Drew’s strategic plan and charter, which aims to serve a mixed-income population. See Drew’s enrollment policies for additional information.

The online lottery application for the 2022-2023 school year will be available on this page beginning February 1, 2022.

All eligible applications that are received during the lottery application window between February 1st, 2022 and April 30th, 2022, will be included in an admission lottery on May 5, 2022. 

If a student is currently on the 2021-2022 waitlist they MUST submit a 2022-2023 application to be included in the 2022-2023 lottery. 

If you are interested in enrolling in the current 2021-2022 school year you may submit a post-lottery application. Any eligible post-lottery application is added to the end of its priority within the existing waitlist in the order in which it was received. Families who are unable to submit an application online may contact Drew Enrollment at 404-450-0567 for assistance. 


For admissions and enrollment questions, please see the Lottery Frequently Ask Questions or contact the Enrollment Team at enrollment@drewcharterschool.org  or (404) 450-0567.
