The Process


Thank you for your interest in applying to Jordan Lake School of the Arts. Please follow these steps:



Parents should first schedule a visit to the school for a monthly tour.  On most occasions we can provide a private tour if you are visiting  from out of town. Call the school directly at (919) 387-9440.  Prospective students are welcome to attend as well.


The school must receive a completed Application & Student Information Form and a $50 non refundable application fee  is also required at this time. We recommend that you bring these completed forms to the school when you visit or they can be sent by mail.  


Upon receipt and review of the application and student information form a two day visit is scheduled. This provides the prospective student an opportunity to experience JLSA, while the staff & students spend time with the child to determine if it would be a great match. If the school and  family agree the student could grow and thrive at JLSA, an enrollment contract will be extended to the family.


To enroll, an $850 non refundable enrollment fee is required along with the signed enrollment contract. Tuition is based on the program to which the child enrolls.  Enrollment contracts are offered on a year by year basis. 


Upon enrollment, a start date will be established for your child. We do enroll for the beginning of each school year as well as have a rolling enrollment. We prefer to stagger new student start dates to best  acclimate in the school environment.
