2019 Main Round Results

2019 Main Round Results

Posted on June 04, 2019

Thank you so much to all of the families and community partners who participated in Camden Enrollment's main round! Families who applied in the main round were notified of their school match on April 30, 2019, and we wanted to share some exciting information about this year's results:

  • 2,692 students applied during the main round.
  • On average, students listed 2.8 schools on their applications.
  • Overall, 88% of students matched to a school, and 77% matched to their first choice.
  • Transition Grades:
    • About 55% of expected new pre-k students applied during the main round. 94% received a school match.
    • About 58% of Camden's rising kindergarten students applied during the main round. 86% of applicants received a school match.
    • About 55% of transitioning 8th grade students applied during the main round. 87% received a school match, up from 73% in 2018.
  • The number of students applying from non-transition grades (all grades except PK, K, and 9) has decreased for the last two years, which may indicate that more families are happy with their school choice and want to remain at their current school until their child is ready to move on to the next level.
  • As in past years, listing more schools on your application increased your chances of receiving a match. 98% of students who listed three schools received a school match, and 100% of students who listed 4 or more schools were offered a seat.
  • 30% of main round applications were submitted through the Camden Enrollment hotline or enrollment center.

Families can log into their account to view their results or call the Camden Enrollment hotline at (856) 536-3999. Families who were matched through the lottery must begin registration at the school they matched to by June 7. Anyone who was not matched with a school or missed the deadline may submit a post-enrollment application at www.CamdenEnrollment.org.
