Hillsboro Charter Academy is accepting applications now through March 3, ahead of an enrollment lottery March 8.
The tuition-free public charter elementary school is open to kindergarten through fifth-grade students from across Loudoun County. It offers a project-based learning environment focusing on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) disciplines.
Grades with more student applicants than seats will take part in a lottery, which will be conducted by an independent accounting firm. Class sizes range from 20 to 25 students, and there are openings in most grades, with the greatest availability in the incoming kindergarten class.
Applications can be picked up at the school office or downloaded at HillsboroCharter.org. Completed applications can be sent to Hillsboro Charter Academy Board of Directors, 37110 Charles Town Pike, Hillsboro, VA 20132.
Parents can schedule a visit to the school by contacting Hillsboro Charter Academy operations manager Precyous Harris at 540-751-2560 or via email at Precyous.Harris@hillsborocharter.org.
