Prospect Hill Academy Charter School

Skip to main content


Admission to Prospect Hill Academy Charter School is lottery-based and open to all Massachusetts residents with preference given to Somerville and Cambridge residents and students with siblings in the school. Lotteries are generally held between March and July of a given application cycle.
There are no academic requirements to be admitted to Prospect Hill Academy and no testing is administered prior to admission. However, accepted students are assigned to a specific grade only after completing a grade level assessment.


Prospect Hill Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental or physical disability, age, ancestry, athletic performance, special need, proficiency in the English language or in a foreign language, or prior academic achievement.


At the beginning of the application cycle in January and February, Prospect Hill Academy will hold one Open House as well as an Information Session with School Tours. We encourage all students and their families to attend one or more of these events to learn about our educational approach and our program, to meet our faculty and administration, and to discover if Prospect Hill Academy might be a good fit.
For more information about admissions or with questions, please send an email to or call 617-284-7911.
