As a public charter school, state law dictates the admissions procedure for Namaste Charter School and all charter schools in Illinois. Admission to Namaste Charter School is by blind lottery. Applications are available on this website and at the school office in January of each year and the blind lottery is held in early spring for all applications received by the stated application deadline.



Namaste’s application process for the 2017-18 school year lottery is now closed.  If you are still interested in applying, you can submit an application via mail or fax (773-376-6495), or simply drop it off at Namaste’s main office and your student will be added to our wait list.  The 2018-2019 Lottery will likely open in January 2018. If you have any questions regarding enrollment, contact Myrna Romo at
