Enrollment will be open until Friday, February 14. If the number of applicants exceeds a classroom’s capacity, a lottery process will take place in the Gillam Center for the Performing Arts located in the TCS school building at 203 West Calhoun St., Clinton, on Thursday, February 20 to fairly determine enrollment.

The process for the Thornwell Charter School lottery is posted on its website: Students who are currently enrolled and wish to return for the 2020-2021 school year will not have to go through the lottery.
