Our Enrollment Process

Cherokee Christian Schools accepts new student applications throughout the year. However, CCS administration reviews all new applications for the following school year in January.

We encourage parents to apply early to ensure available seating for your child.

Application Steps


Submit New Student Application

Go online and complete our New Student Application. Included with the application are links to reference forms which you can share with those providing the recommendations:


Submit $350 Registration Fee

The registration fee is non-refundable except in the following instances: the family moves out of the area, space is no longer available, financial aid is not available (if needed), or the student is not accepted. Payment can be made by check or by credit card. Credit card payments can be made online here.


Forward Additional Records

To complete the initial application process, we will also need:

  • Report cards for the previous two years
  • Previous standardized test results
  • Special test/evaluation results for learning differences
  • Home School Transcript (9th-12th only)

Complete Student Assessment

Students will be tested to evaluate their ability to satisfy the academic demands of CCS.


Attend Principal Interview

The parent interview is conducted by the school Principal and provides a “get to know you” opportunity that includes addressing any remaining questions from the parents and a time for clarification of expectations from the school.


Attend Student - Principal Meeting

(Secondary School Only)

This is an opportunity for the Principal to set expectations and for the student to ask questions about student life in their grade level of our school.


Receive Notification of Acceptance

We will notify you promptly (via letter or email) once the steps above have been completed. If the class is already filled, you will be given an opportunity to join the waiting list.
