Thank you for your interest in Community High School. We look forward to meeting you. Please take a moment to review the admissions process outlined below. It details all the necessary forms, letters and documents we need to fully review your student’s application to CHS.
The admissions process begins once we’ve received the application for admission, Permission Form, Emergency Contact Form, two letters of recommendation, transcripts (including attendance records, discipline records and special education accommodations or IEP, and immunization records). Transcripts can be requested using the Authorization for Release/Exchange of Record Information form available below. We will accept materials via email, mail, fax, or dropped off in person. You may submit materials as they are completed.
EMAIL: Meg Snow, Director of Admissions, email@example.com

Once the necessary documentation is reviewed by the CHS admissions staff, we will contact you to schedule a two-day visit. Your student is expected to participate in class discussion, read aloud when requested, and show interest in the classes attended. During the two-day visit, your student will also be interviewed by both the Academic and Administrative Directors. During this interview process, students are expected to be able to speak to their desire to attend CHS, their current educational history and motivation, and their own strengths and weaknesses.
On the evening of the first day of their visit, students are required to compose an essay explaining why they want to attend CHS, how a CHS education would benefit them, and how their participation would benefit others. The essay is due the following morning.
