Admissions » Application Process

Application Process

Rocky Mount Prep is a public charter school, serving scholars in Kindergarten through 12th grade. As a charter school, we are supported by public funding, are tuition-free and open to any scholar of eligible age who wants to attend. Parents are able to choose for their child(ren) to attend or may withdraw them based on how well we meet their needs.

Our application process is simple. No tests or assessments are required until after an offer of admission has been extended and accepted. It’s just that easy.

Enrollment Process

The admissions application includes basic student and family identification information. If you have multiple children, a separate application must accompany each prospective scholar. Only one application may be submitted per child. 


Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are available online beginning February 1st, 2019. Our open enrollment period is from February 1, 2019 through March 25, 2019. Applications submitted within the open enrollment period will be entered into our admission lottery taking place on March 29, 2019 at Rocky Mount Prep. Our admissions lottery is open to the public. For more information about our enrollment process give us a call at (252) 443-9923.

*Please note this application is only for new scholars seeking admissions. Returning scholars will have intent to return information available through the school. 

*Only 1 application may be submitted. Duplicates that are discovered will be discarded. If you receive admission and have multiple application entries, your application may be disqualified and you will be required to start the application process over.


Wait For Acceptance

Enrollment for each grade is subject to capacity. In the event that there is a surplus of applicants over capacity, a lottery will be held to determine which scholars will enroll for the upcoming academic year. Rocky Mount Prep will admit all students who wish to attend but in the event that there is a surplus of applicants over capacity, a lottery will be held to determine which students will enroll for the upcoming academic year. The lottery is a public drawing. Students who are not selected during the lottery process will be placed on a waiting list. It is important to note that preference is given to students of faculty/staff and siblings of currently enrolled scholars.

Note: Any scholar enrolled, or accepted, after the start of school will be notified by email or phone.  This will help to ensure a timely entrance process. If we are unable to contact you within 48 hours, we will move to the next person on the waitlist and you will lose your place. Please ensure you keep contact information up to date with us.
