5. School Records

Within your parent portal checklist, please locate “School Records Request”.

This will contact the school to send us your child‘s school records directly.

6. Teacher references

Please provide your child’s current Math and English teacher’s names and email addresses on the Teacher Reference Form in the parent portal. Charles Wright will use this information to send an online confidential reference form to your child’s current teachers. Teacher Evaluations should be received by January 31, 2022.

7. Student Questionnaire

We’re excited to learn more about you as an applicant including your academic and extracurricular interests. Students can collaboratively complete this section with the help of a parent, though older students may choose to complete this section independently.

8. Interview

Applicants for grades 9-11 will participate in a 20-30 minute zoom interview with the Divisional Director or the Director of Enrollment Management. This can take place most weekdays between 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Please call (253) 620-8373 to schedule. We look forward to getting to know you better!

9. Tour (optional)

We highly encourage your family to tour CWA and look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful 107-acre campus. We welcome families for an individual tour and will adhere to health and safety protocols. Morning visits work best although we can accommodate other times when necessary. Please call (253) 620-8373 or email us to schedule your family’s tour.
