Yes. Please note: A sibling is defined as a brother or sister, by blood, marriage or adoption, living in the same household. Nieces, nephews, cousins or unrelated children, even if living in the same household as the applicant, are NOT considered to be siblings.
In order to qualify for sibling preference, applicants must have a sibling, as defined above, who is currently enrolled in and attending Philadelphia Performing Arts for at least one full academic year.
Entering the lottery with sibling preference is not a guaranteed acceptance. A Sibling Lottery will be held in the event that there are more siblings applying than seats available in any particular grade. This means that siblings could be on a waitlist for any particular grade.
