    How do I Apply?

    Sandy Ridge is a visual and performing arts magnet school. Students are eligible to enroll in grades K-5 only after completing an application to enter the lottery (a random selection process that allows families to register their magnet choices) and then being selected in the lottery. The magnet application period for admission for the 2020-21 academic year has ended.

    Tours have concluded for the 2019-2020 lottery season. Virtual tours will resume in November 2020. Please contact our Magnet Coordinator, Carolyn Allen, carolyn.allen@dpsnc.net (919) 560-2695 ext 69057 with any questions. 

    Students enrolled in PreK at Sandy Ridge and siblings of currently enrolled students are NOT guaranteed admission and must also be admitted through the lottery system.
     
    If your child is currently enrolled in Kindergarten through 4th grade at Sandy Ridge, he or she has continued enrollment through 5th grade as long as you reside in Durham County and do not enroll them in any other school.
