Lottery & Waitlist Information for 2020-2021:

Eno River Academy begins their lottery process for the next school year each January. An online lottery application form is posted here: ERA Lottery Application 2020-2021 and will remain open until February 21, 2020.

During this time, anyone who is a resident of North Carolina is welcome to complete the application. Siblings must have separate application entries in the lottery. Siblings of current ERA students do get preference in our lottery process in any open spots that are available. 

Once the application is complete, a screen will show indicating if your application was received and how you can check lottery results. 

The lottery will be run on February 28, 2020 and the results will be posted to ERA’s website the same afternoon.

Each entrant is given a confidential identification number consisting of the grade level for which they apply, the student’s three initials, and their month and day of birth shown with two numerals. For example, John Ross Doe who was born on April 1 and will be entering the 2nd grade would have an identification number of: 2JRD0401. These identification numbers are used in posting the results of the lottery so no confidential information is shared. 

Tours of ERA are typically held the first week of each month from October through February. All tours begin at 9:00am. Tour dates may be found on ERA’s website at
