Admission standards

Pocosin Innovative Charter School is a public school and requires no application fee or tuition.


In order to be eligible for admission, students are required to reside in the State of North Carolina at the time of the application.


Under North Carolina General Statute (GS115C-391), Pocosin Innovative Charter 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.


PICS does not limit admission to students on the basis of intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion, or ancestry.


Admission is based on a weighted lottery system if the school receives more applications than open seats during the open enrollment time period.




Acceptance & waitlist: The school will post the results of the lottery on the website within 5 business days of the lottery.
Parents will be notified of the lottery results via email within 24 hours of the lottery. If a student has been admitted to the school, the parent/guardian of the student will be contacted via email
unless they indicated on their application that they do not have access to email.


If the parent is unable to receive email, an acceptance letter will be mailed to the child’s residence. Students admitted before April 15 will have 10 calendar days from the date their acceptance email was sent to accept or decline enrollment and 5 days from the time of the acceptance email to turn in enrollment paperwork.
