Welcome to High Point Academy! 
You have a choice. 
Choose excellence. 

Thank you for your interest in High Point Academy. You have a choice, and we are glad your search for excellence led you to us. We are a tuition-free, STEAM-focused, public charter school serving students in kindergarten through 12th grade who live in South Carolina. We are three schools on one campus, located off Interstate 26 in Spartanburg. When you choose High Point Academy, you choose academics, athletics, fine arts, and a feeling of family. Students are admitted without regard to race, religion, gender, creed, national origin, disability, or socioeconomic status.


This will take you to a screen where you will need to create a PowerSchool login to fill out an application.
We will offer seats that become available after our lottery on March 25, 2023.

To apply for kindergarten, your student must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2023.
(High Point Academy will not offer 4K for the 2023-2024 school year.)

"It feels like home." Josh A., 2021 Graduate

Why do teachers love High Point Academy?

"Not only is it a family environment for the teachers and the people who work here, but it is for the students who come here too." Tessa Porter, Middle School STEAM Teacher

Why do parents love High Point Academy?

"My favorite part of the school is how they treat everybody like family and everybody is welcome here." 
Kimberly Dawkins, Parent


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 slots, a lottery is not required.

Open enrollment to apply for the lottery is from December 1 through March 13. 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 a notification by letter within six days regarding their application status. The remaining students will be placed on the waiting list according to the order 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 prioritize enrollment to siblings of a current student enrolled and attending High Point Academy and children of employees. Additionally, siblings of students accepted through the lottery process are afforded priority enrollment status. However, priority enrollment status does not guarantee a student's admission to HPA, as acceptance remains based on space availability in each applicable grade.

Waiting lists do not carry over from year-to-year and are only valid for the school year in which the student has applied. Therefore, 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.

Thank you for your interest in High Point Academy! We look forward to meeting you.
