Two Steps to Enrollment

Step 1: Complete Your Online Application

When you’re ready, fill out our online application to officially apply for admission. Parents will set up an account to log in and create a new student application for each child seeking enrollment. A non-refundable application fee of $100 applies. Supplemental documents may be required. Please see our Preschool Admissions page or our Elementary and Middle School Admissions page for more details. Families may also apply for tuition assistance. 

Step 2: Complete Your Enrollment

Preschool enrollment can be completed by signing our enrollment contract. For the Elementary & Middle School, the admissions committee will contact families to confirm enrollment and with any additional needed steps.

Continuous Enrollment

Columbia Academy Preschools and Elementary & Middle School operate on a continuous enrollment basis. Below are some frequently asked questions about continuous enrollment.

What is Continuous Enrollment?

Once families have completed enrollment, they will be automatically enrolled for the following school year unless they notify us otherwise.
This will take away the yearly process of re-enrolling, and current families will have a guaranteed placement each school year.

Why Continuous Enrollment?

First, for parents this provides simplicity to your busy lives. We want to improve or simplify your experience at Columbia Academy in any way we can.
Secondly, by ensuring we know our enrollment numbers early, we can plan instructional programs more effectively, hire the most qualified staff, and build an even stronger academic program.
