To be eligible for admission to the Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence (BASSE): a student must be eligible to enter the 9th or 10th grade in the 2022-2023 school year, the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade in the 2023-2024 school year, and all grades, 9th through 12th, in the 2024-2025 school year.
The student and their family must be Delaware residents.
BASSE will not discriminate against any student in the admission process because of their race, religion, creed, color, sex, disability, or national origin, or due to the student’s school district of residence providing a per-student local expenditure lower than another student seeking admission.
In the case that the number of applications exceeds the number of openings after preference is given to students who meet the preference criteria above, BASSE will hold a lottery on March 4, 2022.
The lottery process will be blind so that all students will have an equal chance at being offered a spot in the remaining available seats. Depending on the type and amount of applications received, the lottery will be run manually or via a computerized method.
An electronic version of the application for the school will be available to submit online. Additionally, families who are more comfortable may download, print, and mail their applications to BASSE. For families that are unable to access the school website BASSE will provide them with paper copies of the application upon request.
