Enrollment Guide 2016-2017

Update (2016-09-22): We ran the lottery program this morning to allocate the slots in the program. We will be emailing all entrants with their outcome. We received 70 distinct entries for the lottery, 42 first-timer and 28 returning coders. With only 50 spaces available, we had to turn away 12 first-time students and 8 returning students. If you were turned away, we encourage you to look at other GWC clubs in the area if you were not offered a slot in the Newton club.

Last year, Newton GWC was massively over-subscribed, with all slots filling within 12 hours of our opening up first-come, first-serve registration.

This year we are going to operate a lottery to allocate the slots to interested girls
. Fill out this form to enter the 2016-2017 enrollment lottery:

We offer two sections: Tuesday nights from 6:30 - 8:30, and Friday afternoons from 4:00 - 6:00. You can see the complete list of meeting dates at Each section has room for 15 first-time girls and 10 returning girls. Be sure to indicate in the form whether you are registering for the lottery for only one particular section or for both (you'll be assigned to at most one section). Registering for both lotteries will slightly increase your chance of getting a slot, but please don't sign up for a time you can't attend -- you won't be allowed to switch sections.

Registration will stay open until Thursday September 22, at 11:59PM. We'll run a (computer-implemented) lottery Friday morning and send out email with the results to everyone who registered with a valid email address, whether you got a slot or not. We will not operate a wait-list.

We invite all interested parents and girls to attend our open information session at the Library on Monday, September 19 from 7PM - 9PM. There's no need to attend in order to register - registration is open now - and there is no lottery benefit to attending the information session. Come if you want to learn more or ask questions.

Thanks for your interest in this program, and we hope we'll see you at the Club!
