Application Process

Applications submitted for years prior to the 2020-21 school year are not carried over to the 2020-21 school year. Therefore, you must reapply for the 2020-21 school year if your child(ren) has not been previously admitted to CJCP. No application is needed for current CJCP students that are returning next year.

If you have a student currently attending CJCP and are interested in enrolling your other child(ren), an online application must be submitted for each sibling in a timely manner.

One application per student is allowed. If multiple applications are submitted on behalf of a student, the student will be given the least favorable space based on the lottery results. Therefore, please contact us at admission@cjcollegeprep.org if you need to make a change in the application you submitted rather than submitting another application.

Following the submission of the online application, you will receive an email from us with a confirmation number. If you do not receive it within one day after the submission, please check your junk emails. If you have not received it at all, please contact us at admission@cjcollegeprep.org to verify the proper submission of your application prior to March 1, 2020. No inquiries will be considered after March 1, 2020.

Any false information provided on the application form may disqualify the application and result in dismissal of the student from the school.
