Siblings of enrolled students are also exempt from the lottery and will be offered admission if space is available (taken in order that enrollment applications were received).

Wait List

If your child(ren) are on the waiting list, you will be contacted as soon as space becomes available. You will then have 48 hours to get back to SFCS to confirm your spot. After 48 hours, if you do not respond, your child will be placed at the end of the waiting list and the next potential student will be notified. Wait lists are for the current school year only. They do not carry over from year to year.
