Oxford Prep Public Lottery to be held Saturday April 17, 2010

Oxford Prep's Random Public Lottery will be conducted
Saturday April 17, 2010 at CrossPoint Church beginning at 9:00AM

CrossPoint Church is located at 6950 Edison Avenue in the city of Chino.

Following the open enrollment period each year, applications will be counted to determine whether any grade level has received more applications than availability. In the event that this happens, the school will hold a random public lottery to determine enrollment for the impacted grade levels, with the exception of existing students who are guaranteed enrollment in the following school year. Siblings of students drawn from the random public lottery will also be placed depending upon space available at the given grade level during the lottery process. For example, if a student‘s name is chosen during the lottery and the student has siblings, those siblings will be placed, provided space is available at the given grade level, before another name is drawn. The remaining names will be placed on a waiting list based on the order drawn from the random public lottery (at each grade level). The waiting list will expire at the end of each school year.
