Lottery & Waitlist

Join the Waitlist


Savannah Classical Academy is a public charter school serving residents of Chatham County. Therefore, there is no tuition.

SCA operates under one county-wide attendance zone. If SCA receives more applications than seats available in a grade level, students are admitted by a lottery process as mandated by state and federal law. Once the lottery application window has closed, families may apply to join the waitlist.

SCA does not discriminate against any student on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender or disability. Students are not selected on the basis of ability. SCA is a public, nonsectarian, nonreligious, nonprofit school organized and operated under Georgia State laws.
