Enrollment Overview


    LNC is in its 23nd year of operation and has been awarded an “A” grade by the NC Department of Public Instruction since it initiated that school grading system. 

    There are no fees or tuition to attend. We provide a rigorous college prep program that prepares our students to be successful at their college of choice and beyond.

    The LNC motto is “Together, we learn, lead and serve,” and all students experience leadership and service opportunities which are integrated within the school’s curriculum. 

    Lake Norman Charter is no longer accepting online applications. As mandated by our Charter from the State of North Carolina, open slots are filled through a lottery. Our lottery for admission for the 2020-2021 school year was held in February. We received more than 6,000 applications and have filled all open spots at this time. Any openings will be filled from our current waitlist.

    Our lottery for the 2021-2022 school year will be open November 1, 2020 through January 31 2021 and an application form will be available on our website during that time.

    Please note:  The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, Division of Charter Schools, mandates that out-of-state residents are not eligible to participate in the lottery.
