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 second semester of the 2019-20 school year.
