What is the Lotterease Seal of Transparency and Fairness? When you see the Seal on a school website, you can be confident that your application will be included in the school lottery in a fair and transparent way. 

That is because Lotterease is an independent automated lottery system that the school uses to manage their lottery and waitlist.  Since Lotterease is an independent system, the school staff do not have the ability to manipulate or adjust the lottery outcome.  They must work within the requirements of the system. In addition, all activity that takes place with your application is tracked in a history log that you can view at any time by logging into the parent portal.

If the school you want your child to attend displays the Lotterease Seal of Transparency and Fairness, you can rest assured that you child will get their fair chance to attend the school.

Southern Wake Academy (SWA) admits students without regard to race, sex, disabilities, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin. All students who live in North Carolina are eligible to apply for admission. Families provide transportation for SWA students.
