Langston Charter Middle School is a public charter school in the Greenville County School District. There are no academic requirements for enrollment. As a public school receiving local and state funding, there is no tuition for students residing within the Greenville County School District.
Our school maintains an enrollment of 450 students in 6th – 8th grades. Historically, Langston has always received more applications than there are available openings for the coming year. As a result, in accordance with South Carolina Charter School law, Langston admits all students through a lottery process. We conduct a lottery for each grade level each year, and the results provide the order of selection for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade openings for the following year. Each lottery list becomes the official “wait list” for each grade for the following year. For the 2024-25 school year, we will enroll 144 new 6th grade students via the lottery process and will use the lottery lists generated for both 7th and 8th grades to fill openings as they occur.
2024-25 Lottery Application
The deadline to submit the 2024-25 lottery application has passed as of 5:00 pm November 1, 2023.
Wait List Application
The 2024-25 Wait List Application can be found here. Wait List Applications will be placed in order of receipt at the end of the corresponding lottery list generated during the November 9, 2023 lottery.
Tours of the campus are held annually during the month of October, during the lottery application window, and were recently completed at the end of October 2023. A video tour of our campus is available here.
What about younger brothers and sisters? Do they have to go through the lottery too?
In order to be considered a “sibling applicant” and bypass the enrollment lottery, an applicant must meet the following requirements:
- Share at least one common parent, either by birth or legal adoption with a sibling either currently enrolled or who has completed at least one year at Langston within the last six years.
- Complete and submit a lottery application by the required date.
- Complete all other required steps of the enrollment process.
