Applying to CCHS
Admission to Christopher Columbus High School as a freshman is based primarily on the student's performance on the Columbus Entrance Exam. The application process begins in October when the school starts to accept applications for the entrance exam which takes place in December. You can apply for the exam online on the Columbus website or in person at the registrar's office. Interested students and their parent(s) should attend Open House which takes place in November. In addition, there is an opportunity for mothers of elementary school children to visit Columbus in groups through the "Discover Columbus Luncheons for Mothers."
