The 2015-2016 Specialty Programs Lottery is OPEN. Please click here to apply.
Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) offers
alternative means within the existing public school system to provide
innovative learning opportunities and creative approaches to fulfill
educational objectives for students. Specialty programs provide a range
of learning or unique subjects, activities and/or learning opportunities as an
enhancement of choice for our community.
Through the PGCPS lottery process, parents and students have an opportunity to
secure an available seat in one of the Specialty Programs established in
selected schools throughout the county. Space limitations require that
admission to the Program/School is governed by a random placement lottery.
Applications are available to all students who are residents of Prince
George’s County. Specialty Programs have specific boundaries and all
school assignments through lottery are based upon a student’s home address (not
the before and after school care provider).
