Enrolling Your Child

The first step to enrolling your child(ren) is to join the waitlist via Procare. Families will have the opportunity to indicate the number of children, ages, and desired schedule. Families on the waitlist will be contacted when a space becomes available and be sent an enrollment packet. Enrollment is based on priority guidelines as required by funding and campus policies.

Keep in mind that we have several ways to pay for your child's tuition including our CCAMPIS scholarship, EOPS, CARES, and CDR to name a few.
