How do I enroll my child at ABS?
The Arts Based School application process begins every January for the upcoming school year. Applications received January 1 through January 31 at 3 PM will be included in a lottery, which is held on the second Tuesday in February. Any applications submitted after 3 PM on January 31 will be added to the waitlist in the order in which they were received.
Applicants accepted during the lottery will be notified via email within seven days of the lottery. All others will be added to the waitlist in the order selected during the lottery.
Once a child is enrolled at ABS, they have a spot each year thereafter unless withdrawn. Siblings of currently enrolled students receive priority placement but must fill out an enrollment application.
To be eligible for the ABS lottery, students must reside in North Carolina and be five years of age on or before August 31 of the year in which they are presented for enrollment.
