How to Apply

Prospective Family Meetings

Parents interested in enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year are encouraged to attend a Parent Informational Meeting.  Parent Informational Meetings will be held January 8th, February 12th, and March 12th in the auditorium at 6:00pm on the Elementary Campus.  Weekly tours are given at each campus from January through March.  The secretaries at each campus can schedule a tour for you.

New Students

New student lottery applications will be accepted beginning January 3rd, 2018 continuing through March 29th at 3:30pm.  If there are more applications for a grade than there are seats available, a lottery will be held to fill vacant seats in the grade.  After seats are filled, the drawing will continue to determine the order of a waiting list. Applications received after March 29th at 3:30pm will be considered if space is available or added to the waiting list if classes are full.  Current year waiting lists dissolve when the next enrollment period begins.  Families will be able to click below for the waiting list application.


Lottery Date
The lottery will be April 11th in the elementary auditorium.

Current Students
Currently enrolled students will inform the school of their intentions to stay at Piedmont or leave in January 2019. They will also be able to submit names of siblings that will get priority seating if space is available. If space is not available for all siblings, there will be a sibling lottery.

Application after the Lottery
Applications will still be accepted after the lottery.  They will be placed on the waiting list as they are submitted.  If you have any questions about student records or enrollment that this website can not answer, please feel free to call David Benfield at (704) 349-4640 x4650 or Connie Ravan at (704) 659-4808 x4317.
