    Hillsboro Charter Academy is a tuition-free public charter school. Enrollment is open to all Loudoun students in grades K-5 as they are invited in through the waitlist.

    Hillsboro Charter Academy accepts applications for enrollment year-round. Enrollment spots are filled as they become available throughout the year as well, up until the lottery.

    Each year, applications for Hillsboro Charter Academy’s school year lottery are taken up through Friday before the lottery in March, with an enrollment lottery scheduled to take place during the following week. Applications received after the lottery deadline are placed in the order they are received, falling below the students selected during the lottery.

    There are occasionally openings each year in all grade levels, but the greatest availability is in the incoming kindergarten class. Informational tours of the school for parents of prospective students are scheduled in the January-March time frame. Please check out our calendar or use the link to the left to sign up for a tour as space is limited and reservations are required.
