How It Works

Admissions Process

Florida Cyber Charter Academy (FLCCA) admits any student who is eligible to attend a public school in Florida, subject to school enrollment capacity limitations. Under Florida’s new controlled open enrollment law, students may enroll in FLCCA even if the student does not reside in a specific county. FLCCA is committed to enrolling a diverse student population, as set forth by the provisions of the Florida Educational Equity Act, Section 1000.05(2)(a), and prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, national original, gender, marital status, ethnicity, or disability. All interested students are encouraged to apply for enrollment.

Enrollment for the 2023–2024 school is open.

As provided for in Florida’s Charter School Legislation, the school will give enrollment priority to the following student populations if a seat is available:

  1. Students who are currently enrolled and plan on returning for the upcoming school year
  2. Students who reside in Clay county
  3. Students who are the sibling of a student enrolled in the school
  4. Students who are the children of an employee or founding governing board member of the charter school
  5. Students who are otherwise required to be given a preference pursuant to Florida law

Once the school is at capacity, all students who apply will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which the application is received.

A lottery system is in place due to the enrollment capacities at FLCCA @ Clay. If the number of applications exceeds the number of available seats, a lottery will be held at 9143 Philips Highway, Suite 590, Jacksonville, FL 32256. Applicants do not need to be present to be included in the lottery. Current students who plan to return for the upcoming school year will be given enrollment priority; however, parents need to indicate this intent during the re-registration window to reserve a seat. If a lottery is required, all applicants who applied by the deadline will have equal opportunity in the drawing. Parents are notified in writing of their child’s acceptance no later than three weeks past the acceptance period deadline and will have a specific timeline to respond to the school in writing of their intent to attend. If an accepted applicant decides not to attend the school or does not timely inform the school of their decision, the open spot will be given to the next student on the waiting list.

What is the application process?

Which grades can students apply to enter?

FLCCA @ Clay offers grades K–12. Applications for the 2023–2024 school year will continue to be accepted throughout the academic year and will be approved based on available seats.

Is proof of residence required to apply?

No. Proof of residence isn’t required at the time of submitting an application. However, it is required to complete enrollment.

What if I register my child for a seat but later decide to attend another school?

We ask that you notify us promptly if your plans change, so that we can give the seat and as much notice as possible to the next student on the waiting list.
