D) 11th Grade Applicants

  • CCA is extremely selective in acceptance of students for their junior year of classes.  A student's previous records must be very strong and the student must have positive references concerning work ethic, character, adaptability, and English language ability from their previous school.  Due to CCA's small student population, the class schedule is fairly limited in flexibility.  Therefore, if the remaining classes a student needs for graduation do not fit in the school schedule, the student will not be accepted regardless of records and recommendations.  Few students transferring from an educational system other than the US system will be accepted this late in their academic career. (PLEASE NOTE: Students who would be transferring from an educational system other than the US system will not be considered under any circumstances.)

E) 12th Grade Applicants

  • CCA does not accept students for their senior year of classes except in rare circumstances.  Students who would be transferring from an educational system other than the US system will not be considered under any circumstances.
