Non-Discrimination Policy: Charleston Bilingual Academy admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin and otherwise admits students in compliance with applicable law.



Current families will receive an invitation to apply for the following school year each January.


New families may apply at any time and will be considered for the new school year once priority re-enrollment has ended for current families in February.

1. Fill out the Charleston Bilingual Academy application form.

      • There is no charge to fill out this form and no commitment to enroll.
      • We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser.

2. Interview and tour with the headmaster.

      • Once you submit an application, you will automatically receive an email invitation with the link to schedule an interview and tour with the headmaster.

        3. Provide a reference from prior schools, if applicable.
  • If your child has attended another school, you will need to provide a report that documents the student’s performance (academic and behavior) as well as the parents’ good standing with the school (relationally and financially).
  • You may send the school this link: Charleston Bilingual Academy Reference Form.

4. Fill out a FACTS form if you plan to request financial assistance.

      • Any family can apply for tuition assistance through FACTS Management, a third-party financial aid assessment.
      • FACTS charges a $40 processing fee.
      • Families must reapply each school year.

        5. Complete a Post-Tour Questionnaire.

Following your school tour and interview, you will automatically receive a post-tour questionnaire via email to complete within 2 business days.

6. Once you have completed steps 1-5, the CBA admissions team will review your application and contact you with the next steps.

  • All families will be notified of their application status, regardless of the enrollment decision.
  • If acceptance is confirmed, you will receive an email indicating that your child’s spot will be reserved for 2 business days, allowing you time to turn in student records (a SC immunization or exemption form and your child’s birth certificate), review the Parent-Student Handbook, sign the Handbook Agreement Form and Statement of Cooperation and pay the non-refundable Registration Fee. Enrollment is not complete until all documents are submitted and registration fee has been paid.
  • WAITLISTS – Charleston Bilingual Academy has a rolling admissions process and maintains waitlists due to a high demand for most Early Childhood Education programs. If your child is placed on the waitlist for the current school year, you will be notified. Waitlists do not carry over to the next school year. If you would like to enroll your child for future years, please submit a new application for that year when open enrollment begins in February.
