Choosing your child’s education is a big decision, probably one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make for them. It may be the very key that unlocks their future.
A lottery allows all applicants an equal opportunity to gain admission to the charter school. Priority (that is, pre-lottery admission), can be granted to siblings of current students, siblings of children who win the lottery, former students, children of faculty members, up to twenty percent of the enrollment. Once the lottery period closes, parents may still apply and will be admitted on a space-available basis.
The lottery application for the 2024-2025 school year is now open. We will accept applications for Infants to Grade 8) from December 22 - March 17, 2024. Use the links in the resources section to access the online application. You will need a valid email address in order to create an account with PowerSchool Enrollment to complete your child's application. The Lottery will be held, via zoom, during the MSC Board Meeting on Tuesday, March 19, 2024
MSC is a public charter school authorized by the Charter Institute at Erskine and the South Carolina Department of Education. Additionally, MSC is recognized as an ABC Quality Level B Childcare Facility by the South Carolina Department of Social Services. As such, both authorizing bodies require specific enrollment processes to occur. Below you will find the process for each grade level.
All students enrolling into MSC will be required to provide:
- Proof of Residency (See Resources for requirements)
- Birth Certificate or Passport
- Copy of Parent's Driver's License / ID
- Copy of ID for any individual who will pick up the child
- See below grade level specific requirements
The first step of the registration process will be completed through the PowerSchool Portal for families of accepted students in 3K-Grade 8. If you do not have access to a computer, you may come to the office and complete the forms using one of our computers. MSC office staff can also assist you in this process if you get stuck along the way. Once complete, you will need to submit all of the required forms listed below that are not collected through PowerSchool registration but required because MSC is a licensed childcare center.
For our Infant / Toddler students we only use paper based registration. Find the required documents in the resources section. These documents will need to be filled out for each child.
The State of South Carolina and the U.S. Government generally do not fund school for children younger than age 5. MSC charges instructional fees for students who have not reached the age of 5 by August 31 of the school year that begins in July. An annual contract is required and fees are pro-rated for students starting after the first day of school.
