Southern Wake Academy - Lottery 2020-2021

The online application will be available on December 1, 2019. 

The 2020-2021 Lottery will be held on Thursday, February 27, 2020. Applications must be submitted by noon on the day of the Lottery.  All applications submitted following the deadline will automatically be placed on bottom of the wait-list for the grade to which applied.  The number of slots available is currently set at 1 until such time that we determine the number of returning students and siblings.  Once those numbers are established, closer to the lottery date, the number of available slots will be updated.

Be sure to choose the correct grade your child will enter for the 2020-2021 school year. Grade selections may NOT be changed once a student has been selected in the lottery or from the wait-list. Only 1 (one) application per student is allowed. Multiple applications for the same student will result in disqualification and removal from the Lottery.

OPEN HOUSE events are to be scheduled for November, January, and February annually.

If you have questions, please email: frontdesk@swake.org or call SWA at 919-567-9955.  Please note that as of 3/17/2020, all questions should be directed to frontdesk@swake.org while school closures remain in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
