April 15 - Enrollment deadline
Applicants accepted on March 18 must enroll by this date. At this time, if spaces are still available, the Student Selection Committee will begin the second round of admission decisions. Applicants who were waitlisted during the first round will be reviewed. The committee may consider new applicants as well.
May 13 - All candidates notified
All candidates will be notified by this date. If a space becomes available for candidates who have been placed on the waiting list before the beginning of the new school year, the Student Selection Committee will consider all of the students in this pool, as well as new applicants.
September 20 - Applications open
If no spaces become available before the beginning of school, waitlisted applicants are welcome to reapply in the fall for the following year. The process is the same for students who are reapplying as for those who are applying for the first time.
Parent completes the Application Form and submits it to Community Prep along with a signed Transcript Release Form and $30 application fee.
Parent gives the Teacher Recommendation form(s) to the applicant's teacher(s), along with a self-addressed Community Prep envelope. The teacher completes the form and returns it directly to Community Prep.
Community Prep uses the signed Transcript Release Form to request the applicant's Official School Transcript and Standardized Test Scores from his or her school. Note: Parents are responsible for ensuring that Community Prep receives transcripts.
The Admission Office calls the family to schedule a visit. We must have the transcript, standardized test scores and recommendations on file before the applicant visits the school. We will make every effort to obtain these materials and allow time for them to arrive at Community Prep before scheduling a visit.
