Any child who is qualified under the laws of the state for admission to a public school is qualified for admission to a charter school. In order to apply to a charter school, a parent or guardian must be physically living – “domiciled” – in the state of North Carolina at the time of application. Non-domiciled families must wait until having moved to NC to apply to the school.
Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, Kestrel Heights School may refuse admission to any student who has been expelled or suspended from a public school under G. S. 115C-391 until the period of suspension or expulsion has expired.
We will honor sibling preference of currently enrolled students in our lottery drawing. The term “siblings” includes any of the following who reside in the same household: half siblings, step siblings, and children residing in a family foster home to be granted enrollment priority.
Sibling applicants with shared birth dates (twins, triplets, etc.) will be admitted in the lottery together.
We do not offer surname preference in our lottery.
