Registration & Immunizations

If you are truly serious about college and ready to work hard to achieve your goals, then you belong at Oxford Prep. 

Admissions Policy

We require an online application for consideration of admission to the school. We cannot accept applications from students who do not reside in North Carolina. We give preference to the children of full-time employees, siblings of current students, and siblings of students who attended four years and graduated previously. As per Charter Law, OPS shall not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. We may refuse admission to any student who has been expelled or suspended from a public school until the period of suspension or expulsion has expired. 

Please read the full-text version of our admissions policy for more details.

Kindergarten Entry and Early Admission Policy

In order to enter kindergarten in a public school in the state of North Carolina, a child must have reached his/her fifth birthday by August 31 of the school year in which he/she is presented for enrollment. (House Bill 150)

Some children may show advanced cognitive ability and be ready for kindergarten at an earlier age. If you are interested in pursuing an early admission to kindergarten for your child, please review the North Carolina state policy and set up an appointment to meet with the lower school director, MaryAnn Crews. Your family must follow the procedures for the lottery, however, will only be granted enrollment if the conditions of early admission are met for your child.


Lotterease Transparent and FairWhat is the Lotterease Seal of Transparency and Fairness?

When you see the seal on a school website, you can be confident that your application will be included in the school lottery in a fair and transparent way.

That is because Lotterease is an independent automated lottery system that the school uses to manage their lottery and waitlist. Since Lotterease is an independent system, the school staff do not have the ability to manipulate or adjust the lottery outcome. They must work within the requirements of the system.

In addition, all activity that takes place with your application is tracked in a history log that you can view at any time by logging into the parent portal.

If the school you want your child to attend displays the Lotterease Seal of Transparency and Fairness, you can rest assured that your child will get their fair chance to attend the school.

It is possible that more students will apply for a particular grade than there are available openings. If this situation occurs, we will admit students for that grade through a blind lottery using Lotterease. At a public meeting, we will run the software to fill all spaces in each grade level. We will place the remaining students on a waiting list in the order of their application number's draw.
