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 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 2018-19 school year.  

Applications for admission for the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year will be accepted from January 7 - 18, 2019.  There will be a limited number of openings.  If more applications are received than there is space available, a random selection process will occur, as required by state law.  Coloma Community Schools will have the following openings:
Kindergarten - 0        3rd Grade - 5           6th Grade - 5              9th Grade - 0        12th Grade - 0
1st Grade - 0              4th Grade - 5           7th Grade - 0             10th Grade - 4
2nd Grade - 0             5th Grade - 5           8th Grade - 5             11th Grade - 4
Parents who have applied on or before January 18, 2019 will be notified of the districts decision by letter or telephone by January 25, 2019.  If your child has been accepted, enrollment information will be furnished at that time as well.
