Applications Process

Equal Opportunity:  No student shall be denied equal opportunity on the basis of race, sex, religion, handicap, or national origin.  Discovery School is open to all students.  Each student (or parent) will complete a basic application form.  Applications will be accepted by Discovery School from December through January of each year.


Should the number of applicants exceed the number of available slots, a lottery will be used as required by the South Carolina Charter Schools Act of 1996.  This lottery will take place in the month of February and is open to the public.  When all available slots are filled, remaining applicants will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which their names were drawn.  Every effort will be made to maintain a racial balance that closely matches that of the entire district for the grade levels served.
