According to NC G.S.115C-218.55, a charter school shall not discriminate against any student on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, or disability.

To qualify for admission to a NC public school, a student must be a resident of North Carolina. In order to be eligible to apply for admission to Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School, the student must reside in the state of North Carolina. However, North Carolina County boundaries or school attendance areas do not affect charter school enrollment.

There is no application fee for charter school admission.

Prior to the application period, Sterling will announce on its website when the application for admission will be made available, in addition to the deadline for submission, and the date/time/location of the public lottery drawing.
