Application for First Lottery Due Date: March 12, 2012
Charter schools are public schools and free to all students.
The State of Massachusetts’ enrollment report is due in mid-March. This only leaves a short time for applications to be submitted, a lottery held, and the report finalized.
Any Massachusetts students going into 9th grade in September can apply for a space in our first lottery. Applications are available on this site. Any application post-marked by March 12, 2012 will be entered into our first lottery and will have the first available spaces in our school. The cities and towns of Holyoke, Chicopee, West Springfield, Westfield, South Hadley and Northampton will have priority placement in the lottery.
Applications postmarked after March 12, 2012, will go into a second lottery waiting list.
Submitting an application does not obligate a student to attend; families can change their decision at any time and attend another school.
