Thank you for your interest in Classical Prep! We are a tuition-free, public school of choice, and we welcome applications year-around. Classical Prep is a classical school that focuses on the liberal arts and strong character development.

Any family that is interested in attending CPS for the school year of 2019-20 and has not already registered their student in Lotterease, can submit an online lottery application to join the waitlist. Classical Preparatory School encourages all interested families to add their student(s) to the waitlist.

Lotterease will open in December 2, 2019 for lottery entries for the school year 2020-21.

*Current CPS Families do not need to enter their child(ren) in the lottery to re-enroll for school year 2020-21.

Withdrawal Form

Withdrawal Policy

Any child that has attended at least one school day at Classical Prep must adhere to the following withdrawal policy:

  • A parent or legal guardian must complete a Withdrawal Form by visiting as soon as it is decided that the child will no longer be attending Classical Prep.

  • If school is in session at the time of withdrawal and the student has been attending school that academic year, all Classical Prep property (i.e. textbooks, equipment, and library books) must be returned within 2 school days of submitting the withdrawal form.

  • All outstanding fees must be paid within 2 school days of submitting the withdrawal form .

  • No school records will be released to the parents/guardians or to the transferring school until the withdrawal process has been completed.

Please note that failure to attend class, even at the beginning of the school year is not a withdrawal and the above process must take place in order for a child to be considered withdrawn from Classical Prep.

At any given time, if Classical Prep becomes aware that a current CPS student has completed the enrollment process to attend another school, the parent/guardian will be notified via email that they have 48 hours to contact Classical Prep in the event that they wish for their child to continue to attend Classical Prep. If no contact is made with Classical Prep within 48 hours, the child will be withdrawn.

If a child has been withdrawn from Classical Prep and wishes to re-enroll, the child must be entered into the lottery and/or waitlist and wait until an available seat is offered in accordance with the Enrollment Policies and Procedures. A child’s previous enrollment in Classical Prep will have no bearing on future seat availability at any given time.
