How to Enroll

Enrollment Procedures
Lake Lure Classical Academy (LLCA) is a tuition free public school.  Any child who is qualified under the laws of North Carolina for admission to a public school is qualified for admission to a charter school.  To qualify to attend a NC public school, a student must be a resident of North Carolina. County boundaries or school attendance areas do not affect charter school enrollment.  LLCA does not limit admission to students on the basis of intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion or ancestry.

The enrollment period will begin each year in January and end in March.  During the enrollment period, the School shall enroll any eligible student who submits an application within this period, unless the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces.  A lottery will be held to fill vacant seats for the next school year. After seats are filled, the drawing will continue to determine the order of a waiting list. Current year waiting lists dissolve when the enrollment period begins.

Lottery procedures will comply with the NC Open Meetings Laws provided in G.S, 143-218.10 (a).  LLCA will publicize the date times and location of the drawing and allow anyone to attend.

The School may give enrollment priority in certain instances as stated in G.S.11`5C-238.29F(g).  The School has decided to offer the following enrollment priorities and will implement them in the manner described below:

1. Any child of a current LLCA staff member or governing board member,

2. Any sibling of an existing LLCA student.

Enrollment for the 2019-2010 School  Year.

Between January 3, 2019 and March 26, 2019, LLCA will accept applications for new students for the 2019-2020 school year.  Once enrolled, students are not required to enroll in subsequent enrollment periods. In order to properly plan and determine available spaces, the school will  ask parents to return the “intent to return” letter that will go home January 23 to ascertain if students will return to LLCA the following year.

Applications for new students are available in the School office and on the School website.  If needed, upon request, the application may be mailed or emailed to the parent of a prospective student.

The enrollment lottery will be conducted at Lake Lure Classical Academy on March 26, 2019 at 4:00 PM.
