Hoboken Dual Language Charter School (HoLa), Elysian Charter School, and Hoboken Charter School are free, open to all Hoboken residents, and do not have any entrance testing requirements.

Since the demand exceeds available seats, students are randomly selected for entrance to the schools through a lottery system.

Elysian serves students from kindergarten through 8th grade, Hoboken charter is kindergarten through 12th grade, and HoLa is kindergarten through 8th grade.

The HoLa lottery results will be revealed on January 18th at 9 a.m., followed by the Elysian results at 1 p.m. on the same day, and then finally the Hoboken charter results on January 25th at 1 p.m.
