Sibling Preference:  If a sibling currently attends Sela or is admitted to Sela by lottery, additional sibling applicants are guaranteed a spot at Sela.  Siblings are automatically admitted and are not placed on the waiting list (except grades 3+).

 

When a parent/guardian accepts a spot at a new school through the lottery, you must prove your DC residency on or before May 1st. By proving residency in the new school, you also give up your right to return to your current school.

 

For guidance on proof of DC residency and residency verification questions, please see the OSSE guidelines that we strictly follow.
