The enrollment period for Hillsboro Charter Academy, which begins classes in August as Loudoun County’s second public charter school, is open through March 1.
The tuition-free elementary school will operate under the umbrella of Loudoun County Public Schools but, as a charter school, has more flexibility in how it delivers instruction.
Interested families can fill out an application at hillsborocharter.org. A lottery will be held in March if the number of applicants exceeds the available slots. Children who live in the Hillsboro Elementary planning zone will be given priority in the lottery, and every attempt will be made to ensure that siblings will be able to attend the school together, provided that room is available in the appropriate grades.
Children who are currently enrolled at Hillsboro Elementary and their siblings are not required to apply.
Hillsboro Charter Academy’s mission is to provide a small, community-run school of choice. It will offer a hands-on, experiential learning environment and take a cross-curricular approach to science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).
Call 540-751-2560 to arrange a tour of the school, located at 37110 Charles Town Pike in Hillsboro.
