2020-2021 Fall Update

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to put CLC on “pause” for a year and take a sabbatical.  Our hope and intention is to return for the 2021-22 school year.

With the guidelines from the Oregon Department of Education and Governor Brown’s mandates, we felt these limit how we could best teach, connect, and serve students.

If you are interested in learning more about our program for the 2021-22 school year, you may contact us HERE and ask to be placed on our email list.  We will send out occasional email announcements about upcoming Parent Info Nights, classroom tours, application deadlines and wait lists.

2020-2021 Class Openings

We have our re-enrollment numbers from current families and now have a more accurate gauge of our class sizes for next year.

We have openings in the following classes for the 2020-2021 school year:

  • Kindergarten
  • 7th-8th grade

If you have a student entering either of those grades next year, you are welcome to apply.  The application can be found HERE.

If you have a student entering grades 1st – 6th, you are welcome to complete the waitlist form HERE.

We are very fortunate to be in this position with all of our families returning and a growing interest from new families, and we wish we could accommodate all of your wonderful kids.

Parent Info Night: Wednesday, January 22nd, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

CLC will host a Parent Info Night on Wednesday, January 22nd from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.  The Parent Information Night is meant to help you better understand what CLC is all about.  It is an open Q & A forum.  Please come with any questions you have.  For more information, please see below.

2020-21 Admissions & Waitlist Info.

Q: When will I know if there’s space available for my child next year?
A: Our re-enrollment deadline is approaching for current families, and after we receive those re-enrollment applications, we will have a more accurate sense of how many students, if any, we may accept for the 2020-21 school year.  We will post which grades have openings by Monday, January 13th on our website.

Q: Can I submit an application even if the class is full for next year?
A: In an effort to be more efficient with our application and admissions process, we will only accept applications for students in the specific grades that have openings.  Classes with openings will be posted on our website on Monday, January 13th.

Q: What can I do if there’s not an opening for my child?
A: You are welcome to complete and submit the attached Wait List Form.

Q: What does it mean if I put my child’s name on the wait list?
A: If an opening becomes available in your child’s class, you may be contacted to move forward in the application process.

Q: If I put my name on the wait list last year, do I need to put my name on the list again this year?
A: Yes.  We do not carry over applications or names on a wait list from year to year.

Classes Full — Wait list Accepted

We are very fortunate that our classes are full for the 2019-20 school year.  While we cannot guarantee a shift in numbers either before or during the school year, occasionally that does occur.  If you are interested in being placed on our wait list, please contact us here.
