In the best interest of our staff, community members, and to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 we are cancelling the on-campus lottery event on Friday, March 20. Instead, the lottery will take place in our administrative offices. If you have any concerns, the lottery process will be videoed, and you can make an appointment to view it at a later date.

For any students who are accepted, instructions on how to enroll will be emailed to you as well.

We understand this may be disappointing; however, our main priority is to keep our TMSA community safe and healthy during this rapidly changing situation. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this unprecedented issue.

An application is required because space is limited, but there are no special requirements to attend. After all applications are received by a yet-to-be-determined deadline, a lottery will determine which students can enroll. Others will be placed on a waiting list. This system ensures a fair and equitable admissions process.

Lottery Process
If the number of applications exceeds the number of openings in any grade level then the school will hold a lottery. Students already enrolled in the charter school are not required to re-enroll each year. Names or numbers will be randomly selected either by drawing or computer generated. When all slots have been filled, the charter school should continue the process until every name has been drawn. This process will determine the order of the waiting list. Multiple birth siblings will enter the lottery as one name or number. If that name or number is selected, then all of the multiple birth siblings shall be admitted. If an application comes to the school after the lottery process, the student is added to the bottom of the current waitlist. Preference status entitles an applicant to be offered an available seat ahead of applicants without a preference status. 

Enrollment priority will be given to the following populations in the order listed: Children of employees and Board members will be given preference. By law, these students can amount to no more than 15% of the school’s total enrollment. Sibling preference will be granted to the siblings of currently enrolled students who were admitted in a previous school year. By law, a sibling also includes half-siblings, stepsiblings, and children residing in a family foster home. 

Enrollment Procedures
Once accepted, students must complete the enrollment process. If the enrollment is not completed within the given time period, space may be lost and given to the next student on the waitlist. The following items are needed in order to complete the enrollment process at Triangle Math & Science Academy. If you do not have some of these documents available immediately, such as EOG test results or Kindergarten physical exam, you can bring them at a later time.

  • Government-issued photo ID for parent/guardian
  • Copy of student’s birth certificate
  • NC proof of residency through the utility bill, mortgage/lease document, etc.
  • Immunization records
  • Guardianship/custody papers, if applicable

  • Kindergarten Physical Exam Form from the child’s physician (for kindergarten only)
