NH charter school law requires that we hold a public lottery to build our student body in the event there are more applicants than available spots for enrollment.

Mill Falls educates NH children in grades K-6.

Some basic information about this year’s Lottery to get you started:

Our Lottery Enrollment period begins on Thursday,  January 3rd at 9am & closes on Monday, March 11th at 5pm. The Lottery Enrollment Application (link below) may only be submitted during that period.

Please note that the majority of our open spots will be in the Kindergarten classroom AND in our Upper Elementary Program.

Children must be at least five years old by September 1, 2019 AND reside in NH to enroll.

Families are STRONGLY encouraged to attend a Lottery Information Session. Please see the calendar of events below.

You will find a link to the on-line application below as well as information on obtaining a paper application below.

You must submit a separate application for EACH child that you wish to enter into the Lottery. If you have already enrolled your child in a previous Mill Falls Lottery, please DO NOT re-apply; a child enrolled in a previous Lottery and on our wait list, will already be in our system, organized by grade.

You will receive a confirmation postcard 7-10 days after your completed application is received by the school. That card will note your Family Lottery Number.

The 2019 Lottery will be held on Tuesday, March 19th at 4:30pm at Mill Falls. You are welcome to join us, but your attendance is not required. All participants in the Lottery will receive notification informing them of Lottery results for their child/children. Please click here for Lottery FAQ’s.
