Greater Brunswick Charter School is a tuition-free public charter school open to all New Jersey students, offering enrollment priority to students who reside in Edison, Highland Park, and New Brunswick. Interested applicants should fill out a lottery application on Lotterease and encouraged to attend a GBCS Information Session.
Click the link below to begin the lottery application or add your child to the lottery waitlist.
All interested applicants must fill out the online application by the third Sunday of February each year to be included in the lottery. Applications recieved after the deadline are added to the waiting list in the order they are recieved.
Enrollment is granted to students through a random lottery with preference to residents of Edison, Highland Park, and New Brunswick and current GBCS siblings for each grade level. Applications are limited to one per student, if a student appears more than once they will be withdrawn. Do not enter another lottery application if a mistake was made, please edit or contact the school for assistance.
Lottery Waitlist
Once Lotterease opens for the lottery application in September, you can apply for the current school waitlist and the following school year lottery application. Your child's number on the waiting list is only good for the school year for which you applied. If your child is not called within that school year, it is your responsibility to resubmit a new application for the following school year.
