ApplicationsNew Student Applications
may be completed online by clicking the appropriate link below. Once completed, the application will go to the appropriate department. If you list siblings on the application, you must still submit a separate application for each child you wish to enroll.
The High Point Academy lottery is held each March for the upcoming school year. To be considered for the lottery, an application must be submitted during our Open Enrollment period between January 3 and March 13. Applications
received after the March 13th deadline will be placed at the end of any applicable waiting list in the order in which they were received. HPA will continue to take applications after the lottery occurs and throughout the year. These applications are dated, time-stamped, and placed in the order they are received and placed at the end of any applicable waiting list. Once the school year has begun, administrators may choose to fill openings based on availability.
If you have questions about enrollment, school tours, and current openings, please contact the school at (864)316-9788
or by email at [email protected]
Waiting lists DO NOT carry over from year-to-year and are only valid for the school year in which the student has applied. If a student is not accepted for the current school year and remains on the waiting list, they will need to reapply for the following school year.
Under federal law, charter schools must admit students through a random selection process if the number of applications for a grade or class exceeds the available spaces. If the number of applications does not exceed the available spaces, a lottery is not required.
The HPA lottery will be held on March 25 of every school year. If this day falls on a weekend, the lottery will occur on the first school day following the weekend. After the lottery has taken place, students will receive notification by letter within six days regarding their application status. The remaining students will be placed on the waiting list according to the order in which they were drawn. A student who turns in a late application will be placed on the waiting list in order of the date on which their application was received. If a parent wishes to appeal a decision of admission based on any reason besides the lottery, they may submit a written appeal to the South Carolina Public Charter School District.
HPA will give priority enrollment to siblings of a current student enrolled and attending, children of employees, and siblings of students who attended the school for at least one complete academic year within the last six years. Additionally, siblings of students accepted through the lottery process are afforded priority enrollment status. Priority enrollment status does not guarantee any student admission to HPA, as acceptance remains based on space availability in each applicable grade.
