Admissions Requirements

All Students. All lottery acceptances are preliminary and do not become final until EVCS receives all necessary paperwork, including an authentic copy of a child’s birth certificate, proof of residence, immunization records, and a completed registration packet. This paperwork must be completed and returned within two weeks of notification, or the student’s seat will be offered to the next child on the waiting list.

Kindergarten. All applicants for kindergarten must turn five years old by December 1st of the year they enter kindergarten, in order to be eligible for the lottery.

Grades 1-8. For students entering first through eighth grades, EVCS also requires academic records from a child’s previous school, and a copy of the child’s final report card showing whether or not they were promoted to the next grade level.
