Frequently asked questions about the application process:

1. Do I have to live in a specific neighborhood to attend CWC Kansas City?

All children who reside within the Kansas City Public School District (KCPS) boundaries are eligible to enroll in CWC Kansas City’s schools. In the event CWC Kansas City receives more applications than there are available seats, a geographic preference will apply. To see a map of the preference area, please click here. (Please note:  this preference area no longer applies to additional applications for the 2018-2019 school year - it is just a weight preference for the lottery.)

2. When is my paperwork due?

For the 2019-2020 school year, all enrollment and registration paperwork must be completed and submitted prior to the child’s first day of school.  For grade levels that do not have a waitlist, remaining seats are currently being offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, so do not delay in submitting an enrollment request.

For the 2020-2021 school year, the open application period (where we accept Requests for Enrollment) will open approximately December 1, 2019.  No paperwork is able to be turned in until then.

3. How old does my child have to be to enroll in Kindergarten?

A student must be five (5) years of age before September 1 in order to enroll in Kindergarten of that year.  If your child has a September birthday, please contact our office.

4.  When can I enroll my child in the 2020-2021 school year?

Our application process for the 2019-2020 school year will open on December 1, 2019; each incoming student must complete a 2020-2021 Request for Enrollment.  Please click here for further details on beginning the application process!

5.  What about siblings?

If you would like to enroll multiple students who are siblings (but none of them are currently enrolled CWC students), each incoming student must complete a Request for Enrollment.  The online process will automate much of the duplicate information.  Each student will have their own lottery weight and the same chance to be awarded a seat.  If the lottery awards one of them a seat, all associated siblings will automatically also be awarded seats. 

If you already have at least one currently enrolled student and would like to enroll additional children for the following year, each additional incoming child will need to complete a separate Request for Enrollment and go through the lottery process to be awarded a seat.

6.  When my child transitions from the Primary Grades Campus to the Middle School Campus, will they need to go through the lottery process again?

No.  As long as you complete each year’s re-enrollment paperwork by the deadline (usually February of the preceding year), your student’s seat will be guaranteed throughout their enrollment at CWC Kansas City - regardless of if their grade level promotion is simply grade-to-grade or also includes building-to-building.  A Kindergarten student who re-enrolls annually will have a guaranteed path to high school graduation and college readiness at CWC Kansas City.

However, if you decline an offer of admission, withdraw your student, and/or decline to re-enroll and later change your mind, you will need to re-submit a Request for Enrollment and go through the lottery process again with no weight given for prior enrollment.
