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 Cass County 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 2021-22 school year.  
The Second Semester Application Period will open from December 3 - 17, 2021.  There is a limited number of 1 opening per grade except for 12th grade which is none.  Please contact the Administration Office (269-468-2424) if you would like an application mailed to you or you can use the online application (link below). 
Second Semester begins January 3, 2022.  If your child has been accepted, enrollment information will be included in the acceptance letter you will receive.                                             
After your online application is submitted, you will be contacted once it has been processed.  Please do not complete the online enrollment form until you have been notified of acceptance.
