We are setting up our enrollment process and our first window will open in late fall 2019.
The process, once enrollment opens:
Step 1: Complete a Lottery Application
CCA will accept applications via our Smart Choice enrollment website. Florida law requires a random lottery when there are more student applicants than seats available in a particular grade. NOTE: You will be notified of lottery results via the email and/or phone number provided.
Step 2: Receive an Offer to Register or Wait-list Status
The number of student seats available in each grade will determine how many are sent offers to register. If your student is selected for a seat, you will receive an offer to register. If your student is placed on a wait-list due to more applicants than seats available, you will be notified of wait-list status.
Step 3: Accept Offer to Register
When you receive the offer to register, you will have three days to accept the offer to let us know you plan to complete the registration process. To accept the offer, follow the instructions in the email or text received from SmartChoice.
Step 4: Complete Registration
You will have 10 business days from the date offers are sent to accept and complete the registration process through our SmartChoice enrollment website. CCA has a paperless registration process, so all documents will need to be uploaded using the SmartChoice instructions provided.
Families who do not complete the registration process by the due date will lose their student's seat; that seat will be turned over to a random student on the wait-list.
The maximum number of students in each core class will be:
18 students in kindergarten through grade 3;
22 students in grades 4 through 8; and
25 students in grades 9 through 12.
Enrollment in Cornerstone Classical Academy (CCA) will be open to all students within
Duval County Public Schools and surrounding areas in accordance with Florida Statutes.
We are opening grades K through 6th and adding a subsequent grade each year until we reach the 12th grade. CCA will not limit enrollment until it has reached its approved capacity in accordance with Florida’s class size amendments. Our application process and allowable preferences follow the requirements of Controlled Open Enrollment as set forth in the state statutes.
In accordance with Florida Statutes, CCA offers enrollment preference to the student populations including siblings of a student enrolled in CCA, children of a governing board member of CCA, and children of CCA employees.
