Enrollment for the 2020–21 School Year

  • South Carolina Connections Academy has an enrollment cap of 6,500 students. The open application period was from July 16, 2020 through July 30, 2020. The school was oversubscribed at the end of the application period and, after accounting for returning students and siblings of enrolled students, new students were selected for enrollment through a random lottery drawing held at the school on August 10, 2020.
  • Students selected in the lottery have been notified by email and Final Confirmation must be completed within seven (7) business 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, notification will be sent via email and Final Confirmation must be completed within seven (7) business days.
  • Students who were not included in the lottery and complete all enrollment tasks 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.
  • Due to unprecedented interest in the school and the enrollment cap, South Carolina Connections Academy has paused accepting new registrations until further notice.
