Applications to be part of the lottery are due on Friday November 30, 2018 at 4:00pm. If a lottery is necessary, it will be hold on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 3:00pm.

As per our charter, seats are available first to students with siblings currently enrolled in the Charter School. After that, seats are offered to any Sparta residents, and all other available seats go into a lottery drawing.

Applications received after the deadline are placed in the order we receive them following the lottery drawing.
