Any Boston resident entering kindergarten through 10th grade may apply to be enrolled in METCO using an online portal. Participating suburban districts select students with completed applications every year by lottery, based on the number of slots available in each grade in the district. No preference is given based on academic or athletic performance, personal relationships, or financial need. If not accepted, families can re-apply every year and have another, equal chance. Siblings are prioritized when space is available in an enrolled student’s district. Interested families looking to enroll in METCO should contact METCO, Inc. at (617) 427-1545 for more information. Families may also visit METCO, Inc.’s enrollment website.
