Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If we turn in all our forms early, do we have better chances in the lottery?

No, the lottery is completely random. As long as your completed 9th Grade Lottery Application Form has been received by BMC by November 1, 2019 by 3pm and you reside in South Carolina, you are entered into the lottery. The open enrollment window is simply to give people enough time to apply. Please do not turn your application in prior to 8:00 am on October 1, 2019.


Q: We can't make it to the lottery - do we have to be present to accept a space if we are selected?

No, all applicants who have turned in their forms by the deadline will be issued an Applicant number. If your number is drawn and you are not present, we will notify you. If your student is selected, you must confirm acceptance by (date to be determined for 2019) and submit your completed enrollment packet by (date to be determined for 2019).


Q: Our student was selected in the lottery what do we do now?
