Middlesex County STEM Charter School:

  • Is free to all families. MCSCS does not charge tuition.
  • Is an open-enrollment public charter school. MCSCS is open to all students in New Jersey on a space-available basis with preference given to students from Perth Amboy.
  • Selects students to enroll through an open-public, random lottery. The lottery will be held at the school building on March 16th for Kindergarten through Grade 5. The lottery session starts at 6 pm. Parents and students are encouraged to attend the lottery via Livestream on YouTube.

Application Process

Applications submitted for years prior to the 2021-22 school year are not carried over to the 2021-22 school year. Therefore, you must reapply for the 2021-22 school year if your child(ren) has not been previously admitted to MCSCS. No application is needed for current MCSCS students that are returning next year.

If you have a student currently attending MCSCS and are interested in enrolling your other child(ren), an online application must be submitted for each sibling in a timely manner.

One application per student is allowed. If multiple applications are submitted on behalf of a student, the student will be given the least favorable space based on the lottery results. Therefore, please contact us at admission@middlesexcharter.org if you need to make a change in the application you submitted rather than submitting another application.

Following the submission of the online application, you will receive an email from us with a confirmation number. If you do not receive it within one day after the submission, please check your junk emails. If you have not received it at all, please contact us at admission@middlesexcharter.org to verify the proper submission of your application prior to March 1, 2021. Applications received after the deadline will be added to the waiting list in the order they are received.

Any false information provided on the application form may disqualify the application and result in dismissal of the student from the school.

Lottery Process

The lottery will be held on March 16, 2021, at the MCSCS cafeteria. It is open to the public and all parents/students are welcome to attend. All applications received by the deadline will be included in the lottery except siblings of current MCSCS students since they receive admission preference for available slots.

All winners and waitlisted applicants will be notified via email immediately following the lottery to the email address provided to MCSCS at the time of application.

Applicants who are not selected to enroll through the lottery will be automatically placed on the waiting list in the order determined by the lottery.

Lottery winners will receive an invitation via e-mail indicating the specific paperwork necessary to complete the registration process. The parent or the legal guardian is required to come to the school and complete the registration process in person during the enrollment period (March 19 - April 4, 2021).

Kindergarten Cut-off Dates:

October 30th (Child must be five years old on or before October 30, 2021.)
