Students are accepted at CPRS on the basis of an interview with each family and the administration. All prospective students must be present during the interview.
Final acceptance is based on the interview, previous records, testing results, administrative approval, and financial approval. Students who have been expelled from any school must wait a minimum of one semester after expulsion before CPRS will consider enrollment. The family will be notified as to acceptance of the student. The parents and students must agree to uphold the programs of the school and show support for school policies.
Preschool enrollment usually starts at the beginning of March each year. Class size is limited to 10 students. Classes will be half-days on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Kindergarten enrollment takes place in mid to late April for the following school year. Beginning in late February, parents may schedule an appointment for the KIDS test (Kindergarten Inventory Development Skills). This test is given to all potential kindergarten students to measure gross and fine motor skills as well as other general kindergarten readiness factors. Children must be 5 years old on or before July 31 of the school year. To enter 1st grade, a student must be 6 years old on or before July 31 of the school year.
Re-enrollment begins at the end of April each year. Students who are currently enrolled at CPRS have a 2-week time frame during which they may re-enroll. Accounts must be paid current to re-enroll. If any student has 25 or more demerits, 10 or more tardies or absences for the year, and/or a GPA below 2.0, admission will be determined by the School Administrator.
Open Enrollment begins after the 2-week re-enrollment period ends – usually around the second week of May.
Students may enroll at CPRS for the current year at any time during the school year. If a class has reached capacity, new enrollment applicants will be considered by the administration on a case-by-case basis.
Individuals wishing to enroll a student should contact the CPRS school office for information or to schedule an appointment for an interview and visit. Potential students should bring previous school records if available, as well as social security number, birth certificate number, and a copy of their immunization records.
Please print and complete all information on the application form and bring it with you to your scheduled appointment along with your enrollment fee. The form may be downloaded from the blue box at the top of this page.
