Lake Oconee Academy Admissions

Lake Oconee Academy is a public charter school serving residents of Greene County. Therefore, there are no tuition or fees, save those required for extracurricular activities, if applicable. LOA does not discriminate against any student on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender or disability. Students are not selected on the basis of ability. LOA is a public, nonsectarian, nonreligious, nonprofit school organized and operated under Georgia State laws.

Lake Oconee Academy will begin accepting applications for the 2018/2019 academic year on January 1, 2018. Applications received between January 1, 2018, and March 31, 2018, will be placed in the online lottery drawing to be held on April 11, 2018. Once we begin accepting applications for the 2018/2019 year, you will no longer be able to apply for the current school year (2017/2018) as those already on file will remain on the waiting list for the duration of the school year. (Until May 25, 2018).

Please note: While an application may be accepted from anywhere, pursuant to state law, only persons who have an established residence in Greene County may participate in the LOA lottery. Therefore, only those applications reflecting a home address in Greene County, Georgia, as of March 31, 2018, will be placed in and participate in the lottery. If your initial application does not reflect a current Greene County home address, it is your responsibility to log back into the system on or before March 31, 2018, to update your application once residency is established. This cannot be corrected after the application cutoff date. If you have difficulty updating your application for any reason, please contact Robin Weir in the admissions office at 706.454.1562 before March 31, 2018.

Please review the "Enrollment Preference Policy" and the "Lottery, Waitlist & Enrollment Policy" posted below for further information on the application, waitlist and enrollment procedures. Please also understand that these processes are all electronic, and that any updates and notifications will be made via email and/or text message according to the email address and cell phone numbers you specify. It is therefore imperative that you log back into the SchoolMint system and update any changes accordingly. If you do not have access to electronic media, it will be your responsibility to make contact with LOA to keep current with all notices and/or changes.
