Since 1930, Lena Pope 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 the door 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 11th year with the 2018-2019 school year, serving Pre-K through 6th grades. 

Chapel Hill Academy utilizes a lottery process for enrollment. The random drawing lottery was conducted on Friday, February 23, 2018.  All applications submitted between January 16th and 4pm February 22rd were entered into the drawing for available slots in each grade level. Families are contacted by telephone in the order drawn until all available slots are filled.  If a message is left, you will have 48 hours to return the call to ensure your child’s spot. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to contact all applicants. A waiting list will be created from the remaining names in the order drawn. If an opening occurs, we will contact you in the order assigned by the random lottery drawing. 

We will continue to accept applications on the website. Those submitted AFTER the lottery drawing are added to the waiting list in the order in which they apply. We are unable to answer calls regarding placement on the waiting list. 

To apply, click the “Apply Now” button and follow the appropriate prompts to enter all required information. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION MORE THAN ONCE – DUPLICATE ENTRIES WILL BE DELETED.  If you do not have internet access or need assistance completing the form, please call Chapel Hill Academy at 817-289-0242 and we will arrange to assist you with access.
