- River Valley Charter School enrolls students annually via a blind lottery system.
- Applications accepted for all grades during the annual enrollment period which begins the first school day after New Years Day.
- Approximately 32 new kindergarten students are enrolled each year.
- Other grades are enrolled as openings become available.
- Preference is given to siblings and residents of Newburyport, Newbury, Amesbury, Salisbury, and West Newbury.

If my child is placed on the wait list, do I need to reapply for the next lottery to keep them on the list?
