Thank you for your interest in joining the Hope Charter Leadership Family! Here at Hope Charter Leadership Academy we provide a nurturing and empowering environment for your young leaders. In addition to quality teachers and instruction, Hope Charter offers a key component to helping shape a well-rounded student as well as a contributing citizen of our society, our leadership curriculum.  We value our loving, family-oriented environment, and encourage high parent involvement.

All students eligible for enrollment in a North Carolina Public School are eligible for enrollment at Hope Charter Leadership Academy.  Initial applications for the 2017-2018 school year were made available January 5, 2017.

The enrollment window is open from January 5, 2017 to March 2, 2017 at 4:00 pm.  At that time, it will be determined if we have more applications than spaces available for each grade level.  If there are more applicants than space available, a lottery will be held to determine admission and a waiting list showing the order of entry.  The lottery will be held Saturday, March 11, 2017.

Any applications that are received after the March 2, 2017 deadline will be added to the waiting list in the order that they are received.
Please note: Kindergarten applicants MUST be the age of 5 by August 31st of the school year for which you are enrolling your child.

  • Hope Charter Leadership Academy strongly encourages parents and guardians to participate in 50% of scheduled EAGLE meets. EAGLE meets occur at the beginning and end of 1st quarter, the end of 2nd quarter, the beginning and end of 3rd quarter, and the beginning of 4th quarter. EAGLE meets are when parents/guardians, teachers, and staff come together to look at the progress and growth of our children, and reset academic goals. In EAGLE meets, parents and guardians create their own goal for their child and identify how they can help their child meet these goals.
