Lottery Information for the 2024-2025 School Year

The lottery period for the 2024-2025 school year was held from Thursday, February 1, 2024,
through Monday, February 19, 2024. At this time you may use the links above to enter your student onto the waitlist.

  • Siblings of currently attending EMHS students receive preference in the admissions process and do not have to go through the actual drawing of names if they submit a Lottery Enrollment Form by the February 19 deadline. At EMHS, a sibling is defined as a student who shares at least one biological parent or legal guardian and lives at least 50% of the time in the same household as a current EMHS student. A sibling forfeits the automatic enrollment preference if the February 19 deadline is missed; the student will be placed at the bottom of the Waiting List established at the Lottery Drawing.

The Lottery Drawing will be held via Zoom on Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 5pm to establish
class enrollments and waiting list order for the 2024-2025 school year. We will email families a
link to watch the Zoom live for those who would like to watch. Please know that joining the
Zoom is not required for admission.

For any questions about the Lottery or enrollment, please contact Registrar Charlotte Nee at
