Admissions


At Civano Community School our students learn to be positive citizens in our society through a diverse way of experiences. Students interact and collaborate, problem solve, take into account their questioning skills, and are guided by expert, caring faculty and staff members.

If you are interested in joining the Civano K-8 Community make sure to first attend an informational meeting!

middlers with teacherCivano is proud to maintain their small class sizes and even ratios of boys and girls in each grade level.  Because this is a priority for us we do have a waiting list to enter each year and have meetings for interested families.  

We hold mandatory prospective family meetings three times a year. We vary up the day and time, so that someone from each participating family can attend. Paperwork for lottery participation is handed out at the end of each informational meeting. This is an adult only meeting. We do love kids, but this is a time for adult family members to learn about the school. We look forward to seeing you!

After attending a meeting we hold a Lottery at the beginning of March. Depending on how many openings are available and where your name is on the waiting list you will be contacted if your child’s name was selected.

Having a child already attending Civano does not guarantee a spot of incoming students. It does how ever raise your name on the waitlist.

If you missed the lottery and are interested in getting your child on our wait list, please call our school office: 879-1702.
