Growth is not merely a harmonious increase in size, but a transformation.
– Dr. Maria Montessori

Thanks so much to all who enrolled in the 2021 Lottery and a special thanks to those who helped out. We had 154 applicants in total. Within that group, there are 12 languages other then English spoken and the students hail from 24 different towns. This year’s Lottery Official was Gabi Zola, Southern New Hampshire University’s Director of Strategic Partnerships. The Lottery was staffed by our Executive Director, Project Manager, and Office Manager.

The COVID-19 health emergency required that we hold the 2021 Lottery remotely. Today, we gathered via Zoom technology – each member of the Lottery Team worked in separate places, and our guests joined from their homes.

We used a randomizing number selecting app to ‘pull’ the lottery numbers of each family who enrolled in the 2021 Lottery at our March 15th event. As per our Lottery Procedures, those who were awarded a spot in the Lottery were notified as soon as the event was completed; those who did not receive a spot, will receive written notification of their child’s enrollment status on the wait list in the days following the Lottery.

The Lottery generated a wait list at every grade. The Kindergarten wait list for next year is a new wait list. All other wait lists generated by this year’s Lottery, will be positioned below the existing wait lists generated during previous lotteries. Please note, those on the wait list are now in our system, and need not apply in future lotteries with the same child.

Below are photographs of the results of this year’s Lottery:

Currently, there are no available spots in grades 1-6 for the 2021/22 School Year, so the 2021 Lottery generated wait lists at each of those grades which now live below the existing wait lists for these grades (i.e. wait lists generated in previous lotteries). Please be aware that spots can open at any time during the year. Here are the results from the 2021 Lottery for our Lower and Upper Elementary Programs – Grades 1-6:
