CMIT Academy South ES accepts enrollment applications for vacant seats through PGCPS’ Charter School Office, during the open lottery application period. Specific deadlines for public charter school student lottery applications for the upcoming or following school year can be found at PGCPS Online Registration and Applications website. During the open application period, parents should consider applying to all public charter schools of interest to ensure that all opportunities to be selected in the charter school lotteries have been exercised. Lottery applications can be made by visiting PGCPS Online Registration and Applications website. CMIT Academy South ES will not be accepting any applications as all the applicants need to apply PGCPS directly. Make sure to select CMIT Academy South ES as your first choice.
Students who gain admittance through the public charter school random lottery will receive a placement offer letter.
The placement offer letter must provide parents with instructions for responding to the offer, the deadline for which to respond to the offer by accept or decline, alert for failing to respond, and enrollment and registration procedures. Failure to accept the placement by the deadline will be considered a decline of the placement.
Charter schools may give siblings preference of current students over other new students if space allows.
The policy for sibling preference must be made known annually as part of the open enrollment and lottery application process. Sibling is defined as any natural child, adopted child, stepchild or legal foster child actually living and residing in the same household of the parent/guardian who has completed the charter school lottery application. Cousins, nieces, nephews and unrelated children sharing the same address with the applicant are not considered siblings. Sibling preference is based upon space availability and does not guarantee enrollment for each sibling.
We have scheduled information sessions and open houses for the parents applying CMIT Academy South ES.
