New Student Applications​

DBAE is now accepting student applications for the 2024-2025 school year. APPLY HERE

Students must apply to be considered, and our lottery will be held February 6, 2024. Students who apply after February 6, 2024 will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as seats are available. We will be allotting 90 seats for Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 6th grade. If a student’s grade level is already full, they will be added to the waitlist.

Random Lottery​

If the number of applications submitted exceeds the number of seats available, students will be admitted through a random lottery on February 6, 2024. Families selected will be notified within 1 week of conducting the lottery, and the order of the wait list will also be determined by results of the lottery.
