Lottery Information & Form

Because of their popularity, admission to Fleisher’s tuition-free Saturday classes for children and youth ages 5-18 is by lottery only.

Fall 2014 Semester (September 13-November 15):
The Lottery for fall will open on May 1, 2014. Lottery forms are due by 4:00 p.m. on August 1, 2014. E-mail notifications will be sent August 12. Lottery forms will be available online starting May 1.

Fleisher’s classes are designed to be age-appropriate.  Children must be at least 5 years old before the beginning of the term for which they are registered. Parents or guardians of five-year-olds must present proof of their child's age at registration.

The Process
  1. Completed forms are submitted by the deadline. These may be completed online, sent by U.S. Mail, or hand-delivered during office hours.
  2. The lottery is conducted at Fleisher and lottery results are sent to all participants by email or communicated by phone (only if no email address is provided) in two to three weeks following the lottery deadline.
  3. Waiting lists are established after a class is full, and students on the waiting list will be contacted if a space becomes available. Waiting lists are not held over from one term to the next.
  4. Mandatory parent/guardian orientation is held for those whose child is chosen through the lottery.  During orientation, parents/guardians must attend in order to finalize their child’s registration.  Payment for lab fees will be accepted at orientation only.
