Admission Priority
CAS’s charter limits class size to 25 students (5-12) and 22 students (K-4) or less per class, thus there is a maximum number of students that may be enrolled in each grade. Admission priority for the school year is as follows:
• Currently enrolled/returning students,
• Currently enrolled/returning students’ siblings,
• Students of faculty/board members, and
• New students applicants.

Enrollment Process for Currently Enrolled Students
Current students will be provided “Intent to Return” forms each February via our website, and have until mid-February to complete the form.

Enrollment Process for Siblings of Returning Students and Students of Faculty Members
After the total number of returning students has been tallied and the number of available enrollments has been determined, siblings of returning students and children of faculty members will be given the opportunity to enroll.

***Please note:  If you enter an answer of NO on the Intent to Return form OR do not fill out the Intent to Return form within a given time, this relinquishes your child’s enrollment at CAS and their spot will be filled. It is also worth noting: If CAS receives a Request of Records from another school despite an affirmative answer on the Intent to Return form, we will attempt to confirm with parents/guardians via phone call or email. If no response
is given within 5 (five) school days or the parents/guardians confirms the request, the student’s placement will be relinquished to requesting school and the space will be filled. To regain entry into CAS, the lottery/application process must be followed as it was upon initial entry into CAS***
The lottery will be held within the first few weeks of March each school year.
***Applications that contain false information or that do not provide complete information
will result in voiding that application.***

Enrollment Process for New Students
Remaining open enrollments for new students will be processed using a lottery system:
• For each grade, the applications for new students will be drawn in a random order to establish a call list.
• Parents/guardians will be contacted via the phone number or email provided on the application starting mid-March. Two attempts will be made to contact applicants; after the second attempt, the application will be considered void and the applicant will be required to re-apply in order to be considered for enrollment.
•Applicants who are contacted and wish to enroll will pick up a Registration Packet from CAS and must return all required documentation and fee payments within the time allotted to CAS to reserve the enrollment. There is a one-time $50 book deposit for all grade levels. Should a student leave Coral Academy, this book deposit is refundable upon request provided all books have been returned to CAS with only minimal, expected wear and tear. Kindergarten through fifth grade consumable fees are $160 per semester; sixth through twelfth grade consumable fees are $110 per semester There are two semesters per school year and these fees, for consumables, are non-refundable.

Applicants who are not selected in the lottery, will remain on the waiting list and will be contacted if an open enrollment becomes available. This may occur at any point after March, as CAS continues to enroll even after school starts for each school year.
