Applications for new students are available on this website, Facebook, and in the school’s main office. We’re also happy to mail or email you an application.
We are a tuition-free public school. We enroll all North Carolina students who submit an application unless the number of applicants exceeds the number of available classroom spaces. When we have too many applicants for a grade, we hold an open lottery. We will publicize the date, time and location of the lottery on the home page of this website as well as on our Facebook page. For more information about our lottery policy, please see the Lottery page of this website.
We do not limit admission on the basis of intellectual ability, past achievement, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion or ancestry. We welcome all students who wish to learn in a safe, diverse, and structured environment.
You may apply at any time during the year; however, our main open enrollment period is from January 1 through March 31 each year.
At the end of March, we determine if there is a need for a lottery in any grade. If we have enough space, your student is automatically enrolled, just as if you were enrolling in a district-run public school. We hold a lottery only when we have more student applicants than available seats in a grade.
By law, you must show proof of North Carolina residency before we can process your Initial Enrollment Application. You may show residency in any North Carolina county.
