Applications for the 2022-23 school year are now closed.

Applications for the 2023-24 school year lottery are now open. We will accept applications through March 12, 2023. The lottery will be held on March 17, 2023. At that time we will admit the fall 2023 PK class and will draw for waitlist positions for all other grades.

Children entering PK must be 4 years old at the start of the school year. If your child’s birthdate is after 9/1/2019, your application will not be considered this year.

Please do not submit multiple applications for the same child. It does not increase your chances of admission, as each name will only be in the lottery once.

If you are applying for more than one child, you must fill out a separate application for each of them.


Brass City Charter School provides a rigorous, demanding program. Student success is dependent on parent involvement. 

Brass City Charter School accepts students from throughout the city of Waterbury. Bus transportation to all areas of the city is available. Students living outside Waterbury are not eligible to attend Brass City Charter School.

BCCS opened in September 2013 with 114 children in grades pre-K, K, and 1. In September 2021, we welcomed our first 8th graders, our first graduating class, and added a new class of 34 pre-K students. 

Children are admitted to BCCS by lottery. If you are currently on the WAITLIST, you must reapply for the upcoming school year.
