About Us

If you are a parent in Johnston or surrounding counties with a child approaching grades K-12, we invite you to explore the many advantages of Neuse Charter School, Johnston County's first and only free public charter school. Officially opened on August 27, 2007, the school offers an international studies focus, including foreign language as early as kindergarten. Please don't miss this unique opportunity for your child. 


NCS is a free public school, chartered by the State of N.C. and funded by state and county per pupil allotments as well as federal grants. Any child who is a legal resident of North Carolina and who has not been expelled from another school can attend. NCS provides instruction for grades K-12 in the 2013/2014 school year. Our goal is to keep each class size around 20 students. Kindergarten class size is a max of 18. 

Neuse Charter School is not able to offer transportation, although assistance will be provided to arrange carpooling, public transportation, or other means for getting children to school. Additionally, NCS does not provide food services, but we do offer lunch options throughout the week for purchase
