Our Admissions

Elaine Riddick Charter School (ERCS) opens in August 2020 and will serve grades K-3. Each year, the school will add another grade until reaching Grade 8. Once a student is accepted in the school, the student is not required to reapply each year.  For example, a student who is accepted in Kindergarten may remain enrolled in the school until the completion of Grade 8 without having to submit a new application each year. 

ERCS’s Initial Student Enrollment Application can be filled out by Clicking Here.  ERCS is a free school of choice that selects students chosen in a random lottery. In order to be eligible, you must apply in person or using our online application form.

The process is laid out below. Please contact us if you have any further questions!
