• Lake Norman Charter will accept applications for a public school lottery for students in grades K-12 for the 2018-2019 school year from November 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018.

    LNC is in its 20th year of operation and has been awarded the highest academic designation given by the state of North Carolina for the last eight years. Since North Carolina initiated the School Report Card two years ago, Lake Norman Charter has received an "A" grade both years. 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. You may view a presentation for prospective parents here, along with a video about our school.

    As mandated by our Charter from the State of North Carolina, open slots will be filled through a lottery.  Any applications received after the lottery application period (January 31) will be placed at the end of the waitlist of the grade applied for, in the order of receipt, after the lottery has been held. 

    Applications are not accepted and new students will not be admitted after the 20th school day.

    Siblings of currently enrolled students are given priority for enrollment.

    Group tours are conducted only during the application period (November 1 to January 31). 


    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.
