New Enrollments

  • The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has restricted any enrollment, transfers and withdrawals and transfers at this time. Therefore, in the interest in promoting the safety and well-being of our community we will not conduct enrollment meetings while schools are closed. 

    Students who have relocated whose most recent school has not been in session are encouraged to stay connected to their current school’s resources and remote learning opportunities.

    Parents who have recently relocated to our attendance zone can complete the enrollment form located here and provide two separate proofs of domicile from each of the required sources, and all other required information listed here, along with previous school transcripts, if available. This information should be scanned and emailed to 

    When school resumes you and your student will be required to come to our office and meet with Lisa Ryan (Registrar) who can notarize your enrollment packet. Once the enrollment form is approved and notarized your child will be officially enrolled. Our registrar may have questions for you prior to school returning so please respond to her emails and phone calls to ensure enrollment and class assignment is expedited when school resumes.
