    • Students within Lowell Public Schools in the eighth grade, whether or not they are Lowell residents;
    • Non-Lowell High School ninth-grade students who are Lowell residents, but were not living in Lowell during the 8th grade, so that they could not apply for admission in the eighth grade (these students would enter the Lyceum in the tenth grade);
