Alma del Mar is an open enrollment, free public charter school.  Admission is based on a random, public lottery. There are no admissions tests or interviews. Alma del Mar invites all students in New Bedford to enter the lottery.  The school welcomes English Language Learners, Limited English Proficient students, and Special Education students.

Our lottery for the 2016-2017 school year was held on March 1, 2016.  We will be accepting applications for the 2017-2018 lottery in the fall of 2016.  Check back here to download an application next fall!
