Chapel Hill Academy is an Open-Enrollment Public Charter School and does not charge tuition. We are excited to begin our 10th year with the 2017-2018 school year, serving Pre-K through 5th grades. 

Chapel Hill Academy utilizes a lottery process for enrollment. The random drawing lottery was conducted on Friday, February 24, 2017. All applications submitted between January 17th and 4pm February 23rd were entered into the drawing for available slots in each grade level. Families will be contacted by telephone during the month of March 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 has been 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, however applications submitted AFTER the lottery drawing will be 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 forms, please call Chapel Hill Academy at 817-289-0242 and we will arrange to assist you with access.

We are pleased that beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, the Chapel Hill Academy Charter has been expanded to include three additional school districts. Students that reside in the districts listed below are eligible to apply for admission to Chapel Hill Academy. Per state and TEA regulations, documentation of residence verification is required.
