Open enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year begins January 13, 2017 and ends March 3, 2017 at 3:30 PM. All applications will be electronic this year. Annually, only one application per student will be accepted. Applications do not roll over from one year to the next.
During the open enrollment period we will hold a limited number of guided school tours for prospective students and parents. Please sign up here to secure your spot for one of the available dates.
When determining a student's eligibility for admissions, several data points are considered. The applicant’s historical grades, benchmark assessment scores, EOG scores, EVAAS data, as well as their discipline and attendance record are considered.
If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number of seats available for any grade level, applicants will be assigned a randomly generated lottery number to establish the wait list for that grade. Enrollment preference is given to qualified siblings of currently enrolled students at Mt. Mourne School and the children of Iredell-Statesville Schools full time employees. When one child in the family is already a student at Mt. Mourne IB, siblings of the enrolled student receive preferred enrollment status for the following years, provided the older sibling will still be at Mt. Mourne for the coming year.
All qualified students residing within the physical boundaries of the Iredell-Statesville School District are eligible for the lottery. Students from outside of the school district's attendance zone will be a part of a second lottery if needed. The lottery will be held after the application window is closed. Any completed application received after the application window will go at the end of the list and be kept in a first come first serve manner. Applicants placed on the waiting list will be contacted when space becomes available in that grade. This year's lottery will take place at 1:00 PM on March 14th at the district office. Applicants will be notified of their application status via a mailed letter, which will be placed in the mail at the end of March. We do not notify applicants of their status by telephone.
There is no cost for a student to attend Mt. Mourne if they reside in the Iredell-Statesville School District. Students residing outside of our district are required to pay an annual tuition fee which is established every summer.
To apply, please click the link for the online application at the top of this page. Applications must be submitted before 3:30 PM on March 3 to be considered for the general lottery.
A portion of the application requires a short student essay and a brief parent response. While filling out the application, the parent and student will both need to be present.
