Steps to Apply

Scholars new to Cleveland Arts & Social Sciences Academy take a placement assessment to determine their grade level and possible interventions we may need to put in place to assist them. After a scholar’s assessment is scored and grade level determined, we share the recommended grade level determination with the parent. In some cases a scholar may be retained in his/her current grade.

At this time, parents are invited to continue with the enrollment process, as we want to ensure parents are fully aware of their scholar’s grade placement.

Please fill out the full Registration Packet on SchoolMint by selecting the link below. After submitting the packet, a school representative will be in contact with you to schedule a placement assessment.
