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 three (3) 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 three (3) days.
  • Students in grades K–8 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.
  • Space is available in grades 9–11. Students in grades 9–11 will be enrolled on a first come, first served basis until the cap is reached. Once the cap is met, students who complete all enrollment tasks will be placed on a waiting list and released to enroll based on space available in the student's grade and in the date order that all enrollment tasks were completed.
  • Enrollment is paused due to state testing from 9/25/2020–10/22/2020 for Kindergarten. Students in Kindergarten will be placed on a waiting list as all enrollment tasks are completed and released to enroll based on space available once the freeze has ended on 10/22/2020.
  • First semester enrollment will close on 11/19/2020.
    • The last day to register was 7/31/2020.
    • The last day to submit documents is 11/12/2020.
    • The last day to complete Final Confirmation is 11/19/2020.
    • Students in grades 1–11 not enrolled by 11/19/2020 will have the opportunity to enroll for second semester. Grade K will close enrollment for the 2020–21 school year.
  • Second semester enrollment is now open for grades 1–11.
