• Admissions & Enrollment 

    Any school-aged child (five years old by December of that year) who is entering kindergarten through eighth grade is qualified to apply for admission into the school.

    South Buffalo Charter School is located within the Buffalo Public School District, and due to this Buffalo residents are given preference for enrollment during the lottery process. Additionally, siblings (students who share a legal or natural parent/guardian) of current SBCS students are given priority during the enrollment process.

    We are in the process of moving to a fully online web based application for our enrollment and lottery.  This process should be fully implemented by Fall of 2019. Applications for the 2019-20 school year are now available by clicking here:  SBCS Uniform Charter School Student Application Form.  You may also down load and print the application here: SBCS 2019-20 Charter School Lottery Application  

    Please remember that students on the waiting list do not carry over from year to year.  Therefore, if your child previously applied and was placed on the waiting list, you will need to re-apply for the lottery for the upcoming year.

    If you have several children applying, please remember that each requires his/her own application. 

    If you have any questions about filling out the application or the application process in general, contact Angelica Gonzalez, Office Manager, at (716) 826-7213, or via email at agonzalez@southbuffalocs.org.  

    Non-Discrimination Statement:  A charter school shall not discriminate against or limit the admission of any student on any unlawful basis, including on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, race, creed, national origin, religion or ancestry. A school may not require any action by a student or family (such as an admissions test, interview, essay, attendance at an information session, etc.) in order for an applicant to either receive or submit an application for admission to that school.

    Note: A separate application must be completed and submitted for each child applying for admission.
