Pursuant to O.C.G.A. Section 20-2-2066(a), there is no Admissions Criteria for acceptance to Oglethorpe Charter School other than living in the Savannah-Chatham County School District. Interested Parents or Guardians must obtain and submit an Admissions Application by the designated annual deadlines as outlined on the school website and at the school. There are three scheduled Open Houses in January where parents can tour the school, ask questions, and learn more about our school program. If the number of applications exceeds the capacity of the school program, all applicants will have an equal chance of being admitted through a random selection process known as the Enrollment Lottery. Preference will be given to any sibling of a currently enrolled student and to children of a teacher or staff member.
