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.

Application Requirements:

  • 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

Important Dates:

Last Friday of November- Last day to submit an application so that you are included in the December interviews.  

(If you miss the November deadline, that is okay!  CIVITAS operates on a rolling admissions system and there will be at least two more interview dates after the start of the New Year, one in January and one in the spring.  In order to be included in that, submit your application as quickly as possible.)

Out of district? Apply and once accepted into the program, submit an inter district transfer to San Juan Central.
