We invite you to learn more about our school, our philosophy of education and the outstanding young people who are UrbanPromise.

Step 2: School Visit and Testing

All prospective students must complete the Terra Nova test.  There is a $35 fee to take the test.  This fee will be credited to the student’s first month’s tuition if the student enrolls at the school.  Finally, a staff member will conduct an informal interview with the student and family.  The interview may be waived for CFS students.  All three of these things can be completed in one visit or spread out over more than one visit to the school.  Families should also have completed the K-to-College Scholarship application by their informal interview so the principal can calculate their scholarship for next year.

Step 3: Admission

A formal offer is made by the school and will include information about the scholarship the student is eligible to receive and their tuition costs.

Step 4: Registration Documents

Registration paperwork includes the Enrollment Agreement, Health/Medical forms, transcript request form, Pinnacle enrollment form (only for UPA students), 8th grade diploma (if entering 9th grade), and Bus Transportation form (if the student lives more than 2 miles from the school).  Once this paperwork is complete and families have paid the first month’s tuition (1/10th of their total tuition), their student’s seat is reserved.  Families must pay a second month’s tuition by August 20th in order to hold their student’s seat.  Families will also get information about topics like uniforms, school supplies, and the school calendar.
