How to Apply

Open Enrollment Now Through December 15, 2016
Grades 1st – 8th

Open Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is going on now.  Fill out and return the Application for Enrollment Consideration form to CMCS by December 15, 2016.  In the event that the number of applicants for first grade exceeds the number of openings, selections will be made by public lottery by Monday, January 9, 2017, in accordance with SC Charter School law.  Attendance is not required for admission to school.

Students submitting Applications for Enrollment Consideration forms after the open enrollment deadline of December 15, 2016, will be admitted if there is space available. If there is not space available, those students will be placed in a waiting pool and continually updated regarding their status.

Application for Enrollment Consideration forms are available on our website and :

  • in our office at 247 Wildcat Way, Pawleys Island, SC 29585
  • Teach My People:  753 Waverly Rd, Pawleys Island, SC 29585

Return the Application for Enrollment Consideration forms by the December 15th deadline:

Rolling Admissions Policy

In addition to an Open Enrollment period, Coastal Montessori Charter School has a rolling admissions policy. This means that CMCS welcomes Applications for Enrollment Consideration year-round. Families are made aware if spots are available. If not, students are placed on a waiting list.

Existing CMCS Families

Currently enrolled students don’t need to reapply during Open Enrollment. However, parents of siblings getting ready to enter CMCS DO need to submit an Application for Enrollment Consideration for their rising 1st grader, even though our charter allows for sibling preference.

Please feel free to contact our office manager Kristy Harbaugh at 843-235-0413 if you have any questions at all or visit the Admissions page on our website for more information.
