Enrollment for the 2017–18 School Year

  • North Carolina Connections Academy has an enrollment cap of 2,100 students for the 2017–18 school year. The new student open application period was from March 1, 2017 through March 31, 2017.The school was oversubscribed at the end of the application period and, after accounting for returning students and their siblings, new students were selected for enrollment through a random lottery drawing held at the school on April 27th at 3 pm.
  • Students selected in the lottery have been sent an offer of enrollment by email. This offer must be accepted within 10 calendar days or the student’s spot will be forfeited to the next student on the list. Students included in the lottery but who were not selected have been placed on a lottery waiting list chronologically in the order in which their names were drawn in the lottery. Students on the lottery waiting list will be notified and released to enroll if space becomes available in their grade. When a student is released from the lottery waiting list, an offer of enrollment will be sent via email and must be accepted within 10 calendar days. Students who accept the offer of enrollment will have 14 days from the date of acceptance to complete the enrollment process (everything except placement at this time).
  • The school will continue to accept new applications. These students will be placed on an enrollment waiting list in order of when they completed all enrollment tasks. Students on the enrollment waiting list will be notified and released to enroll if space becomes available in their grade. Students on the enrollment waiting list will only be considered for a space once the lottery waiting list has been exhausted.
