We are a publicly-funded institution that is free and open to all children in the state of Pennsylvania, but residents of the City of Philadelphia have priority. Enrollment at FACTS is determined through a public lottery.

We will begin accepting applications for the 2024-25 school year on November 1, 2023.  You must complete a new application each year. Forms must be received by February 2, 2024.  Any intent to enroll forms received after February 2nd will be added to the bottom of the waitlist in the order they were received.

You may apply for admission using our online platform or by paper form. Please choose one and do not do both. Paper forms must be dropped off in person during school hours or sent via regular mail:
