Historically, Langston has always received more applications than there are available openings for the coming year. As a result, in accordance with South Carolina Charter School law, Langston admits all students through a lottery process.  

To be included in the enrollment lottery, all applicants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Attend one of three Application Orientation Meetings held prior to the lottery;
  • Complete and submit a lottery application by the required due date.

  • EXCEPTION: Parents of CURRENTLY ENROLLED Langston students are not required to attend a meeting in order to make an application for a younger sibling. 

These requirements are mandatory each year for all new applicants, even those applicants who have siblings either currently enrolled or enrolled in past years.  All applicants meeting the above requirements will be entered in the enrollment lottery, with results posted immediately following the lottery on the front doors of the school.


What about younger brothers and sisters?  Do they have to go through the lottery too?

In order to be considered a "sibling applicant" and bypass the enrollment lottery, an applicant must meet certain criteria.
