Brooke Charter Schools is a network of tuition-free and public charter schools providing an academically rigorous education to students from Boston and Chelsea. We have three k-8 schools and we opened Brooke High in the fall of 2016. We are currently accepting applications for k2-8 openings. Admission is based on a random lottery. There are no admissions applications or interviews, and there is no tuition fee. All students in Boston Public Schools and Chelsea Public Schools – including English Language Learners, Limited English Proficient students, and Special Education students – are encouraged to apply through the lottery.
