Available Choice Lottery Seats for 2023-24

Every school in Hamilton County that is accepting students through the Choice Lottery application process for the 2023-24 school year is listed below. Each school listed will have the grades available at the school in the left column, and the number of seats per grade in the right column.

You can apply for up to five choices on the application. Choices include Magnet schools, Open Enrollment schools, Early College programs, and Future Ready Institutes.

*Grade levels highlighted and starred are creating waitlists only

**Schools listed in purple are non-processed schools

***Please scroll up and down for the full list of available schools and left to right for a the full list of available grades.



Non-processed schools mean that families still submit a school choice application and are run in the lottery, but rather than receiving a letter of acceptance, schools must first review the transcripts of applicants and applicants must complete additional steps before final acceptance. Prerequisites can be GPAs, test scores, auditions, or more. Schools then contact the students who are accepted. Waitlists expire on the first day of school of each school year and are not carried over to future years.
