Admissions Information Night for TK-8th Grade

CCDS offers two Admissions informational meetings each school year. This is an opportunity to learn more about our admission policy, tour our campus, and ask question in a group setting. This year's dates for the 2020-21 school year were December 2, 2019 and January 27, 2020. Please read about the admissions process below.

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.

Interested applicants must do the following to apply:

Complete an interest form for admission on our Home page by clicking "Apply Now" in the upper righthand corner. You will be directed to SchoolMint, which is our online Registration Program. If you need assistance with filling out the School Mint interest form, please visit the main office.
