Dear Potential Parent/Guardian 

We will open a window for enrollment.  If you are interested in enrolling a student please complete the interest form by clicking on this Link. Enrollment is not guaranteed and also based on Teacher availability in your service area. Students will be placed as open spots become available once the lottery has taken place. If we have enough open spots for all who apply, a lottery will not be necessary.

If needed, CWCS Lottery Drawing will take placeThursday, October 8th at 1:00pm

A randomizer will be used as a tool to assist  in the selection order in which we will be filling any available spots for the enrollment of the 2020-21 school year. Emails will go out to families that will be invited to fill those openings. There is a response period to finalize your online registration. If the family selected no longer wishes to participate we will move to the next family in line.  

Thank you once again for your interest and patience during this process.
