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 economically disadvantaged students. 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. 

Information about the 2022-2023 school year's application and enrollment windows will be available on this website at a later date. For admissions and enrollment questions, please contact the Enrollment Team at enrollment@drewcharterschool.org  or (404) 450-0567.

Admissions for the 2021-2022 School Year


The lottery application window for the 2021-2022 school year was February 1, 2021 through April 30, 2021. All qualifying applications that were received during the application window were included in a lottery held on May 6, 2021. Certified lottery results can be found here

The application reopened on May 15, 2021 to accept post-lottery applications. Any eligible post-lottery application will be added to the end of its priority within the existing waitlist in the order in which it was received.

Waitlist for the 2021-2022 School Year

If your student was placed on the waitlist for the 2021-2022 school year, they will remain on the waitlist through the remainder of the school year unless a spot opens in the applicable grade and they are the next student on the list. Should a seat become available for your student, you will receive a phone call, email, and/or a text message (whichever method of communication you selected on your application) extending the offer. Once an offer is made you will have five business days to accept the seat and complete the enrollment process.
