Admission is open to any North Carolina resident of proper age unless demand exceeds the number of spaces permitted in a charter school agreement with the State. An application must be submitted for the siblings of current students if the siblings are not currently attending Success Institute Charter; however, returning students do NOT need to reapply.
All applicants must complete an application and return it to the school prior to the designated deadline. This includes siblings of current and/or past students. Applicants must provide all information requested in the application. Failure to complete the application in full will remove your application from consideration. Success Institute Charter School does not retain applications from previous enrollment periods; if you applied last year and didn't get in, you will need to complete a new application.
If the number of applications exceeds the number of slots available, a lottery date will be set, applicants notified, and a lottery held to fill openings. All other applicants will be placed on a waiting list set by the lottery. The open enrollment period for the 2024-25 school year starts on January 3, 2024. Applications received after the due date will be added to the bottom of the waitlist in the order they are received.
The lottery process is set by State Law and the school follows all sections of the law outlined by the State of North Carolina. The enrollment lottery is random, transparent, and open to the public.
Per state law, qualifying siblings of current and former students are eligible for priority in the enrollment lottery. A sibling must live in the same household and be a direct sibling of the current student enrollment, sibling of a former student. The former student must have been enrolled at Success Institute Charter School for a minimum of three years and must have completed and have completed grade eight with us.
Siblings who are of multiple births are considered together in the lottery If one sibling is accepted, the other siblings(s) must be accepted. The application allows parents to submit ONE for all students that are part of the multiple birth
