Enrollment in a Rhode Island charter public school is conducted by a blind/random lottery because there are typically more applicants than seats available. Beginning in the 2022–2023 school year, Rhode Island charter schools were offered the opportunity to participate in a newly created common application online process. EnrollRI was launched to ensure that access to Rhode Island Department of Education schools and programs remains easy, safe, and accessible for all families. Village Green Charter School participates in the Rhode Island Department of Education’s charter public school common application process through the EnrollRI website. The common application makes it easier for families to select and apply to many schools at once. For more information about this process, click here. EnrollRI offers two resources to begin the application process. The first is the Family Information Tool (FIT), accessible here. The second is the common application itself, accessible here.
Use the Family Information Tool (FIT) to find the school(s) that meets the performance, accessibility, and programmatic targets you are seeking. Next, use the EnrollRI Common Application to apply to any participating charter schools you are interested in and for which your child is eligible to attend. Village Green Charter School, along with other participating charter schools, will hold their 2023-2024 admissions lotteries on April 1, 2023, or after, and will communicate your student’s enrollment status soon after that time.
