Virtual Lottery Livestream

The lottery drawing was broadcast live per the schedule above.

Families are not required to view the lottery. The intent of the lottery is to establish the order in which spaces will be offered to students depending upon availability. During the lottery, it will NOT be announced which students have received a space. Notifications will be sent according to the process outlined above.

In order to maintain student confidentiality, staff will be pulling the enrollment lottery utilizing each student’s unique 6-digit ID number (not by name).
You can find your student’s ID number
here using your application confirmation number and email address.


Please note: On lottery days, we will have limited staff available to respond to inquiries. We will respond to voicemails and emails as soon as we are able.


My daughter was homeschooled exclusively grades K-5 and her scores were “below basic.” After three years at Springs Charter Schools, she is scoring “advanced.” Her confidence has soared in the supportive Springs Charter Schools environment.
