How to Enroll

BART is a free public school open to all students, regardless of income or ability.  There are no selection criteria.  The current deadline for the 2017-2018 school year is 12 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.  If necessary, lotteries are held at 2 p.m. on the following day.

Can my child enroll at BART?  If your child can enroll in a district public school, then he or she may enroll at BART. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or prior academic achievement.  Our enrollment policies are included with our Enrollment Form (Versión española aquí.).  (If any applicant feels s/he has been discriminated against in the application process, s/he should contact either April West, Principal, at 413-743-7311 x721 or Julia Bowen, Executive Director, at 413-743-7311 x720.)

How can I learn more? We encourage you to learn as much as you can before enrolling.
