Enrollment Information


Enrollment Period


This year, our six week open enrollment period runs from 11:00am on February 16 through 4:00pm on March 26. All forms received during open enrollment will have the same chance to get a spot in the school. Over enrolled classes will be filled by lottery, which will occur at the school office on April 6. Students whose forms are received after March 26 will be placed in classes or on wait lists on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately, NC charter school law prohibits us from giving priority to students on this year’s waiting list. We must receive enrollment forms for all students seeking enrollment for the school year. If you wish to read our entire enrollment policy, click here.

If your child’s fifth birhtday is after August 31 of her/his kindergarten year, please review the MDCS Early Kindergarten Enrollment policy.

Thank you for your interest in MDCS. Please take some time to visit the classroom pages and see what our students are doing. When you arrive at a classroom page, be sure to click on the teacher’s name to learn more about them. A school is only as good as its staff and ours is excellent. The School Overview and the Director’s pages have some good background information on our school and charter schools in general. Be sure to check out the Education Outdoors link to see the unique enrichment opportunities we offer our students. Please do not hesitate to call our school office with any questions you may have.
