Enrollment at NECP
North East Carolina Prep School is a tuition free public school. Any child who is qualified under the laws of North Carolina for admission to a public school is qualified for admission to a charter school. To qualify to attend a NC public school, a student must be a resident of North Carolina. County boundaries or school attendance areas do not affect charter school enrollment. North East Carolina Prep School does not limit admission to students on the basis of intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion, or ancestry.
Charter schools may give enrollment priority in certain instances as stated in G.S. 115C-‐ 238.29F(g). North East Carolina Prep School uses the following enrollment priorities:
- Children of employees
- Children of board members
- Children who already have currently enrolled siblings
During each enrollment period, North East Carolina Prep School accepts applications for new students. Once enrolled, students are not required to enroll in subsequent enrollment periods. Each spring, the school asks parents to submit letters of intent to return to North East Carolina Prep School for the following year. Applications for new students are available in the school office and on the school website. Upon request, the application may be mailed or emailed to the parent of a prospective student.
The enrollment period takes place each fall with the dates announced. During the enrollment period, North East Carolina Prep School shall enroll an eligible student who submits an application within this period, unless the number of applications exceeds the capacity of a program, class, grade level, or building. If the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces, a lottery will be held to fill vacant seats for the next school year. After seats are filled, the drawing will continue to determine the order of a waiting list. Current year waiting lists dissolve when the next enrollment period begins.
Lottery procedures must comply with the NC Open Meetings Laws provided in G.S. 143-‐ 218.10(a). North East Carolina Prep School will publicize the date, time, and location of the meeting and allow anyone to attend.
