Enrollment and Placement

Registration for the lottery for placement in METCO is open to any child of color in kindergarten to 10th grade who resides in the Boston and Springfield areas.  Parents may register by using METCO, HQ’s new online portal during the October to December registration window. Districts select students with completed applications every year by lottery, based on the number of available seats in each grade.  Interested parents may call METCO, HQ at (617) 445-1545 or visit their website at http://metcoinc.org for more information. It is important to note that METCO is a public school program with desegregation as one of its primary goals and METCO districts, such as Scituate, do not handle registration or the lottery process.
