Parent Info » Enrollment



The only criteria for enrolling in Pataula Charter Academy is to live in one of the seven counties served; Baker, Calhoun, Clay, Early, Randolph, Terrell, or Miller.  If the school has less spaces available than students applying for enrollment, a random lottery will be held to determine which students will be enrolled.  To learn more about enrollment in PCA see the Enrollment Policy below.  To apply for enrollment the Pre-Enrollment Form below must be completed and returned to the school.  Open enrollment for the following year begins in November of each year.  You may email forms to enrollment@pataula.net , mail them to the attention of Lyn Adkinson, or drop them off at the school.  To be eligible for the lottery the school must receive a Pre-Enrollment Form on each child no later than the Thursday prior to the lottery, which is usually held the second Saturday in January.  Check PCA’s newsfeed for exact dates and times of lottery.

The lottery will be held Thursday, January 10 at 6PM in the PCA lunchroom. Applications may be dropped off at the school, mailed to the attention of Lyn Adkinson, or emailed to enrollment@pataula.net.  We will continue to take pre-enrollment applications after the lottery date.  Those students will be placed in available spots or on waiting lists by the order of which their applications were received. 

***PCA is NOT using the online pre-enrollment/lottery platform that Spring Creek Charter Academy is using. Please do not use those links to register your child for PCA.

***Please maintain documentation that the school received your pre-enrollment application.  If you hand-deliver you should receive a "receipt notification" from the Record's Clerk.  If you email, please keep the response email stating the application was received.  If you mail your application, you should follow up with a call to ensure it was received if you do not receive a receipt notification by mail.  
***Current students do not have to complete pre-enrollment forms.  Students will remain enrolled at PCA unless withdrawn by a parent/guardian.  However, siblings not currently enrolled must submit a completed pre-enrollment form.
