Admissions Policy

Calvin Nelms Charter Schools
Admission Policy

Ph: 281-398-8031 

All students are eligible to apply for grades 6-12 if they reside in any of the following school districts: Cypress Fairbanks, Fort Bend, Houston, Katy, Royal, and Sealy.

Currently enrolled students expressing a desire to return are automatically enrolled for the following school year. Vacancies in each class are then determined.

Admission forms from new students are accepted through the online admissions form only. Admission forms are accepted during the months of December thru June for the upcoming Fall Semester and June thru December for the upcoming Spring Semester. If there are more eligible applicants than available spaces, then a lottery (conducted in late April) will be used. A name is drawn for each vacancy that exists, and each applicant whose name is drawn is offered admission. The remaining names are then drawn and placed on a waiting list in the order they were drawn. If a vacancy arises before the commencement of the school year or during the school year, the individual on the waiting list with the lowest number assignment will be offered admission.

Applicants are required to provide copies of transcripts or other academic records prior to enrollment. This will make it possible to more easily determine if openings are available in the courses needed by the applicant.

A student will not be considered for enrollment that has a current or pending placement in a disciplinary program. All such placements must be completed by the student before they will be considered for enrollment. Failure to disclose this type of information will void a student’s application for enrollment.

How the enrollment process works:

1. Complete the online Admission Form. 

2. Once online form is printed you will be called to pick up an Enrollment Packet, if there is possible room for your student.

3. When the completed Enrollment Packet is returned, and we have determined if there is possibly room in the grade that your student is in we will then call you for an interview.

Please call 281-398-8031 Ext. 100 with any phone number(s) or e-mail changes after submission of your application.

In accordance with TEC 12.111(6), Calvin Nelms Charter Schools do not discriminate on the basis of sex, national origin, ethnicity, religion, disability, academic, artistic, or athletic ability, or the district the child would otherwise attend. CNCS may exclude a student who has a documented history of a criminal offense, juvenile court adjudication, or discipline problems under Subchapter A, Chapter 37.
