Click here to complete an interest form to be placed on the CCDS Wait List for the 2019-2020 school year. All interest forms that were submitted by February 22 at midnight were included in the March 1 random selection process. Please contact Stacy Ferguson at 895-2650 ext. 201 or email with any questions.

CCDS conducts our admissions process through School Mint. School Mint can also be accessed through the School Mint app available at the Apple Store / iOS or Google Play / Android.

The Admissions Process

CCDS endeavors to accommodate all students who apply for admission; however, because applications for admission exceed the number of spaces available, CCDS uses a computerized random selection process to determine admission status and the waiting list. Spaces are allocated to form a student body that reflects the demographics of the region in which the school is located.
