Chapel Hill Academy Charter School

Since 1930, Lena Pope Home, Inc. has been working with children and families to help create hope, happiness, and success.  We believe that each child can achieve great things when they are encouraged to learn in ways that work for them.  Chapel Hill Academy Charter School opens doors to this success and inspires hope for the future!


Chapel Hill Academy is an Open-Enrollment Public Charter School and does not charge tuition.  We are excited to begin our 7th year with the 2014-2015 school year, serving Pre-K – 5th grades.

Chapel Hill Academy utilizes a lottery process for enrollment.  The random drawing lottery was conducted on Friday, February 28, 2014.  All applicants submitted between January 20th and February 27th at 4pm were entered into the drawing for available slots in each grade level and those names drawn have been contacted.  A waiting list has been created from the remaining names.

We will continue to accept applications on the website which will be added to the waiting list.  Openings that occur throughout the enrollment process and the 2014-2015 school year will be filled from the waiting list. To apply, click the “Apply Online Now” button on the left of this screen.  Enter all required information and submit.  Please do not submit your application more than once, duplicate entries will be deleted.
