Admissions Overview

Orange Charter is a tuition-free, public charter school serving students in grades K-8.

All families living within the State of North Carolina are eligible to apply.

The application window for the 2015-2016 school year begins on Monday, January 5th and lasts until 3 p.m. on Friday, February 13th. All applications received during this window will receive equal consideration.

Starting on the morning of January 5th, click here or visit the main office to receive a Pre-Lottery Enrollment Packet for 2015-2016.

This year’s admissions lottery is scheduled for Friday, February 20th at 8:30 AM. Applicants can attend. All applicants will receive notification of their admissions status during the week of February 23rd.

Those families not receiving offers of admission will automatically be placed on our waiting list for the duration of the 2015-2016 school year.

Outside of the lottery window, mid-year applications are also accepted.

All grade levels are currently full with a wait list except for 8th grade.

Though the siblings of current students are guaranteed spots for K & 6th (and prioritized for all other grade levels), parents still need to fill out an application/registration form upon their initial entry to school. Likewise, families of current students do not have to re-apply for the 2015-2016 school year, but will be asked to submit an Intent to Return Form prior to Friday, January 30th to help inform our planning.
