Admissions

Enrollment applications for the 2021-2022 school year are now being accepted. CAL is accepting students for grades K through 12th grade. Enrolling doesn’t bind you to attend CAL but it lets us know who is interested, helping us with hiring teachers and organizing curriculum materials.

* Enrollment deposit is 15% of total tuition per student. Without an enrollment deposit paid, the student may be moved to the wait list. ** Tuition and Deposit for each subsequent year will be determined by the Governing Board by February.

It is the heart of the CAL Governing Board to keep tuition, deposit, and fees as affordable as possible while still maintaining financial responsibility.  Our hope is that no family will avoid enrollment due to our tuition and related costs. CAL founders are working tirelessly to provide financial assistance and scholarships for families who desire a classical education and have a true financial need.
