School of Choice

The Coloma Community School District is a "Schools of Choice" school district. This means that students who live in the Berrien County ISD, Van Buren County ISD or Lewis-Cass ISD may apply for admission to Coloma Community Schools without having to receive permission from their resident district.  Students who are accepted under the "Schools of Choice" program may attend Coloma Schools without any tuition charge. The district must give a preference for enrollment to other school age children residing in the same household with any "Schools of Choice" student who attended a district school during the preceding year or the first semester of the 2020-21 school year.  
There is a limited number of openings for the 2020-2021 Second Semester application period.
All grade levels have 1 opening with the exception of the following grades, which have NO openings:
4th, 7th and 12th. 
The application period runs December 7 - 18, 2020.  Second semester begins January 4, 2021. 
If accepted, you will be notified no later than January 4, 2021.
