Our lottery for the 2023-24 school year will be held Thursday, March 2, 2023 @ 4:30 p.m. at Libertas Academy. The application for the 2023-24 school year will close on Wednesday, March 1 at 5:00 p.m. Applications completed after that date will be held on file in case a second lottery is needed to fill seats.
Enrollment is based on our random, public lottery. However, siblings of current students have preference over other applicants.
