No Information Sessions are scheduled at this time.
In the event that the number of applications for any grade exceeds the number of available seats, a random lottery will be held. If a lottery is required the date that the lottery will be processed will be announced and the results posted on the school website. Please note that the lottery is both system generated and random.
**View the Lottery Rules and Procedures here.**
The lottery for the 2013-14 school year has been processed. The results have been posted below, by grade level. Applicants selected in the lottery will receive an official offer from the school. Applicants who were not selected in the lottery have been placed on the waiting list and will receive an offer should a seat become available.
Lotteries for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 8th grade were run. The results of those lotteries are not posted and no offers extended, because at this time there are no seats available in those particular grades. In order to ensure impartial selection, the order of the waiting list has been determined through random generation, just like the lottery.
Currently, there are enough seats available in the 9th grade to accommodate all applicants. A lottery was not necessary. Therefore, all 9th grade applicants will be offered a seat.
Prior to the start of school families will be provided with a registration package and instructions for each child who has received an offered seat. To complete Registration process, please compelete the packet (linked below) and return to Cherokee Charter Academy. Please do not sign the Georgia Affidavit until with Registrar. Note other documents needed, i.e. copy of birth certificate.
