Thank you for your interest in CHS admissions!
Admission Letters for the 2013-2014 school year were sent to the homes of prospective students wishing to enter Grades 5-9 the week of February 4, 2013.
Frequently asked questions about the admissions process can be found here. (updated Fall 2012)
Each year, the response target for notification of admission to grade 9 is the end of January and the response target for notification of admission for grades 5-8 is the end of February. The school district works as quickly as possible to review admissions critieria, but also works diligiently to make sure all student review folders are complete before notifications take place.
