Applying to CIVITAS
Why Should You Apply?
There are lots of reasons to apply to CIVITAS. For starters, CIVITAS exposes students to courses and information that most other high school students do not get. Secondly, students forge strong relationships with their peers, creating a family. Thirdly, CIVITAS offers students a "home" on campus, where it is a safe space for them to branch out and express their opinions. Most importantly, CIVITAS prepares students to be active and civic-minded citizens.
A 3.0 grade in both English and Social Studies
Satisfactory citizenship grades (B or higher) in ALL classes; minor, if any, infractions/incidents requiring disciplinary action
No excessive attendance issues
Verification of these requirements (examples: transcripts and report cards)
Two Letters of Recommendation
