For Elementary School (Grades K-5), report cards and standardized tests must show a current grade level or above performance across all subjects.

  • School reference forms and report cards must show that the student is an independent learner and has the ability to be successful in a rigorous college-preparatory environment.​

  • Students with prior drug, alcohol, or other similar issues must have successfully completed (including being 100% drug and alcohol free) a full semester in a regular school program prior to being admitted to COLCA.
