$150 registration fee (non-refundable) must accompany each application.

Interview and TestingAll applicants will be tested by a member of the CTCA faculty. Students may be tested in small groups or individually.
Appointments for testing, interview and assessment will be scheduled through the school office.
Accept/Decline NotificationParents will be notified by phone call if the student is accepted. Parents will receive written notification of any applicant's decline.
Acceptance or decline will be based on the applicant's report card grades (including conduct), previous achievement test scores, and admission testing results.
Completing the Enrollment ProcessParents of the student who is accepted will be expected to carefully read, sign, and return a contract and all required paperwork. All paperwork will be due the first day of school. Once a student is accepted, his/her place is not secure until the signed contract is received in the school office with all applicable fees.
A payment plan must be chosen at the time the contract is signed. Parents are expected to comply with all requirements of the contract regarding the payment plan that is selected.
Parents of students in grades 1 – 4 should sign a records release form that allows CTCA to obtain your child's records from a previous school.
Parents should provide the school with a certified copy of the child's birth certificate, child's social security card, and child's immunization/health (if not in records transferred from previous school.) A copy of both the mother and father's driver's license must also be on file before a child can attend school. Health records include a copy of the child's current immunizations and certification of a physical exam by a doctor. These must be recorded on a Tennessee Child Health Record provided by the child's pediatrician.
