Admissions Overview

Eno River Academy (formerly Orange Charter School) is a tuition-free, public charter school serving students in grades K-10. We are expanding an additional grade each year until reaching K-12 by the 2018-2019 academic year.

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

The application window for the 2017-2018 school year begins on Tuesday, January 3rd and lasts until 3 p.m. on Friday, February 17th. All applications received during this window will receive equal consideration. Currently, we have openings in 9th and 10th grade.  All other grades are operating on a waitlist.

Those families not receiving offers of admission will automatically be placed on our waiting list for the duration of the 2017-2018 school year. Outside of the lottery window, mid-year applications are also accepted.

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 207-2018 school year, but will be asked to submit an Intent to Return Form prior to Tuesday, January 31st to help inform our planning.

Contact the main office with any questions regarding our admissions process.
