April 13 signup deadline for Liberty, Victory & Legacy Charter Schools’ Annual Lotteries

 

            April 13, 2023, is the deadline for parents and guardians to sign up their children for the annual lotteries for the Liberty, Victory, and Legacy Charter School Districts. Each school district’s lottery will determine its 2023-2024 waiting lists. Although Liberty, Victory, and Legacy are all Harbor Schools in Nampa, each school is considered its own district, requiring separate lotteries to be held. Therefore, those interested must sign up their children at each school in one of the following ways:

 

  • Complete the lottery form at each school in Nampa during school hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday-Friday. Liberty is located at 9955 Kris Jensen Lane; Victory at 9779 Kris Jensen Lane; and Legacy at 4015 S. Legacy Way.  
  • Go to each school’s website: libertycharterschool.com, victorycharterschool.net, legacycharterschool.net, and follow the instructions for submitting online, by email, or fax. Instructions in Spanish are also available on each school’s website.

 

Parents and guardians can confirm that the schools received their lottery submissions by calling Liberty at 208-466-7952, Victory at 208-442-9400, and Legacy at 208-467-0947. The schools will hold their lotteries on April 20, 2023, as follows: Liberty at 3 pm, Victory at 3:45 pm, and Legacy at 4:30 pm. If a parent/guardian needs to complete the forms in a format other than English, or needs an interpreter to assist in completion, assistance by the school(s) will be provided. Those needing this service, please call each school to make arrangements.

 

            Liberty, Victory, and Legacy Charter Schools are public schools and, therefore, do not charge tuition.
