School Year Application Process

1. Fill out the application form. We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser. There is no charge to fill out this form.  

2. If you plan to request financial assistance, please apply here (FACTS charges a $35 processing fee). Any family can apply for tuition assistance through FACTS Management, a third-party financial aid assessment. If the financial aid assistance does not meet your family's needs, CBA will be implementing a Tuition Work Credit Program where there will be opportunities for a limited number of families to regularly employ your gifts to help the school (to receive taxable, tuition credit). Please do not let finances be a reason for not applying to our school. It is our belief and experience that parents who truly want this education for their child are able to make it happen.

3. Upon review of your application, you will be invited for an interview and tour with the director. 

4. If your child has attended another school, you will need to provide a report that documents the student’s performance (academic and behavior) as well as the parents’ good standing with the school (relationally and financially).  You may send the school this link: Charleston Bilingual Academy's Reference Form.

5. Once CBA has confirmed acceptance, your child's spot will be reserved for 48 hours, allowing you time to turn in immunization records, review the Parent Handbook, sign the Handbook Agreement Form and Statement of Cooperation and pay the registration fee of $190. Tuition is due no later than the first day of each month, beginning in July.
