How To Enroll

The NCVA lottery is now closed. Families that did not apply during the lottery window can apply for the 2021–2022 school year starting on May 10.

For the upcoming school year, North Carolina Virtual Academy has an enrollment cap set by the state. Seats will be selected by lottery from the applications submitted between March 1, 2021 and April 15, 2021. Applicants not selected in the lottery will be placed on our wait list. Seat offers will be extended throughout the school year as space becomes available.

Families that applied during the lottery window will receive an email notifying them of their status following the lottery drawing on April 23. This email will include the next steps on how to enroll, which includes creating a parent portal account. Families can also log into their account on the lottery website and see their application status and lottery results.

Families that didn't apply during the lottery window can submit an application starting on May 10, 2021. Once all documentation is submitted, applicants will be added to the waitlist and notified when a space becomes available.
