STEP 2: Lottery

Each trimester, BDEA will conduct two lotteries in order to fill the available number of seats in each program. Students whose names are drawn will be notified by the school and will schedule an information session with the admissions manager. It is recommended, though not required, that you bring a parent or guardian to the information session. Those students whose names are not drawn are eligible for inclusion in the remaining lotteries for that school year.
