School Choice Application


  • Bourne participates in the Massachusetts School Choice program whereas families of non- Bourne Residents who are interested in enrolling students in Bourne Public Schools may do so K-12 based on availability. If students are accepted into the School Choice program they are considered a Bourne Public School student until graduation.
  • There is no tuition cost for a family to make this choice. If there is availability at a grade level students can be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the school year. If the number of spots are limited due to enrollment, BPS will do a lottery twice per year. Typically the first lottery for fall enrollment in the next school year is done in early April and then again in late August. Families will be notified of their status after each lottery.
  • If you are interested in School Choice please complete and print the application below. If there are multiple children in your family who you want to enroll in Bourne Public Schools, please complete an application for each.
  • Mail or drop off  a hard copy of the application and supporting documents to: Bourne Public Schools Administration Office, 36 Sandwich Road, Bourne, MA 02532
