Information About the Selection Process

Please note the lottery selection process for A.D. Henderson University School and Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition has begun. Remember, that the lottery selection and admission process are ongoing since students withdraw and enroll throughout the year. Because of the class size limitations, seats are not filled until the current students are promoted or retained, which may be dictated not only by faculty assessment but also by FCAT scores. The selection process is focused on retaining a student demographic profile in each research school that reflects racial, ethnic, and economic diversity of the state’s students. Students are selected until all currently available seats are filled within the necessary demographics. Selections will be made as openings arise and those selected will receive an email from which will invite your child to attend the FAU school your applied for.

Thank you for your patience.
