Registration for Middleburg Community Charter School begins tomorrow, Jan. 1, for the 2016-2017 academic year that starts in August.
The elementary school will accept student applications until midnight March 11. Interested families can apply online at middleburgcharterschool.org/admissions.
Middleburg Community Charter School has maintained a running wait list since it opened in 2014 as the first charter school in Northern Virginia. It is a public school that is open to all Loudoun County residents. Siblings of current students, children of MCCS teachers and staff, and Town of Middleburg residents have priority enrollment.
Once currently enrolled students have notified the school of their intent to return next year, a lottery will be held March 15 for the remaining openings. Families who win lottery openings will be notified no later than March 18. From there, students’ names will be placed on a wait list in the order their applications were received.
In addition to offering an extended school year schedule, the charter school has a project-based, cross-disciplinary curriculum that includes science, technology, engineering, arts, math, social sciences, Spanish, music, strings for fourth- and fifth-graders, and daily physical education classes. It offers full-day kindergarten, as well as enrichment classes to all students during fall and spring intersession breaks. Transportation is provided for students at four hub locations throughout Loudoun County.
