Admissions Process

Parents must complete an Admissions Form, available through a link on this site. STEMCivics does not accept applications through the mail. Please see the Admissions Form for additional information. STEMCivics accepts applications beginning October 1 for the next school year, and throughout the school year for the current school year if spots open and there is no waiting list. Students are conditionally accepted provided there is availability based on our allotted enrollment. 

October 1, 2023 - May 1, 2024
The first enrollment period will be held from October 1, 2023 - May 1, 2024. 
Parents/guardians who apply during this period will be notified no later than May  3, 2024 and must submit the preliminary documents by May 17, 2024 to hold a place until they submit their Transfer Card by June 30. If we are oversubscribed for this period, a lottery will be held May 31, 2024, in the second floor conference room of the Administration Building, 1555 Pennington Road, Ewing, NJ 08618. at 10 A.M. Students will be admitted based upon the results of the lottery.

Any remaining students will be placed on a waiting list based upon their results in the lottery. The waiting list is available for inquiry in each school's main office. Waiting lists are in effect for one school year only.

Spots which open during the school year (July 1 forward) will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis if there are no students on a waiting list when the spots open.
