Student Application FAQ

Who can apply?

As a public school, we invite applications from all children who reside in the state of North Carolina and meet age requirements. Visit our kindergarten calculator page for state-specific age requirements.

When do I apply?

We want every child to have an equal opportunity to attend our school. All applications received during Open Enrollment will be given equal consideration after the closing date through a lottery. Open Enrollment for the upcoming school year begins on October 1st at 8:00 a.m. school’s local time and ends at 5:00 p.m. on November 30th.
 
You can also apply after the Open Enrollment period. However, your application will be processed in the order in which it was received, after all previous applications that have been submitted. 

Not ready to apply?

Do you have more questions? Would you like to take a tour? Please provide your name and email address, and we will get in touch with you soon! 

Do I need to submit a separate application if I want to apply to more than one NHA school?

If you are interested in applying to multiple schools, please complete the additional schools section on the application.

If there is not a seat for my child this year does my application roll over?

Applications are valid for one school year only. If your child is on the waiting list, we will notify you of the Open Enrollment period for the next school year, so you can reapply in time to be part of the lottery.
