CSLA, CSAS Begin Kindergarten Application Process

Monday, September 11, 2017

Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts (CSLA) and Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS) will begin their process of Admissions for Kindergarten 2018-19 in the coming weeks.  If your child will be 5 years old by August 15, 2018, they will be eligible to be entered in the Kindergarten Lottery for the two schools that will be held October 4, 2017.

 

In order to submit an application for your child into the lottery, a parent or guardian must attend one of the Orientation Meetings at the school they are interested in attending.  If a parent is interested in both schools, they will need to attend a meeting at EACH school.  Meetings are designed for adults and children are not encouraged to attend.  These meetings should last no longer than 1 ½ hours.  At the conclusion of the meeting, the parent/guardian will be given an application for that particular school with a Lottery ID number on it.  Applications must be filled out and returned that evening to be placed in the lottery.  On October 4, the lottery will be live-streamed from HCDE’s Central Office and parents/guardians will be able to see when their Lottery ID number is drawn.  Separate lotteries will pull applications from CSAS and CSLA that same day.  During the Orientation Meetings, parents/guardians will be informed of the process and requirements after the lottery if they choose to pursue possible admission for their child.  CSLA and CSAS can only admit Hamilton County residents to their schools and proof of residency will be required if a student is offered admission.

 

CSLA Orientation Meetings (attend ONE) – Tue, Sept.

19 @ 6pm and Mon, Sept. 25 @ 6pm.  CSLA is located at 6579 East Brainerd Road.  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to park and be seated for meeting to begin.

 

CSAS Orientation Meetings (attend ONE) – Thur, Sept. 21 @ 6pm and Tue, Sept. 26 @ 6pm.  CSAS is located at 865 East Third Street downtown.  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to park and be seated for meeting to begin.

 

Additional information about Kindergarten Admissions is available on both the CSLA website (csla.hcde.org) and the CSAS website (mycsas.com).  Both schools accept applications for grades beyond Kindergarten at any point in the year and students are added to the wait list for those grades based on the date the application is submitted.  Applications can also be found at the school websites.
