Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • If I want to participate in the English class lottery, do I have to come to the school?
    YES – You must come to the school on Thursday August 17th to submit an entry form.  BUT, this should not take too long because there will be no lottery or testing on that day.
  • Will there be 2 separate lotteries?
    YES – If you come in the morning of Aug 17th (to St. Tarcisius), your name will be part of the lottery for MORNING classes.  If you come in the evening of Aug 17th (to Fuller School), your name will be part of the lottery for EVENING classes.
  • On August 17th do I need to arrive at the school before 6:30PM (or before 8:30 AM for morning classes)?
    NO – You can come any time between 6:30 and 8:30PM (or between 8:30 and 10:00AM for morning classes).  ALL the names collected during that time will have an equal chance in the lottery.
  • Do I need to watch the live-streamed lottery on August 23rd?
    NO – When you come to the school on August 17th, you will submit an entry form with information (phone, email) on how to contact you.  If your name is selected in the lottery, the school will contact you.
  • If my name is selected in the lottery, what happens next?
    You will be asked to come to the school for testing.  Then you will be assigned to either a regular English class (6 hours each week) or a volunteer-led, once-a-week prep class (2 hours).  If you are placed in a prep class, you are automatically on a priority list for a regular class, and do not need to participate in any more lotteries.
  • When are the classes?
    Regular morning classes are on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings from 8:45 to 10:45.
    Regular evening classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30.
    Prep classes are on one of those mornings, or evenings, each week.
  • I can’t come on August 17th.  Can I come on the 16th (or some other day)?
    NO – Unfortunately, the only day you can come to submit your name for the lottery is on August 17th.
