Cherokee Charter Academy BEGINNING OF YEAR INFORMATION – 2022
We are excited about our new school year and wanted to share news and reminders concerning class list, orientation, breakfast and lunch program, bus pickup, ect. We are excited to be adding Two 4K classrooms and expanding to 7th grade this school year. The great opportunities at CCA are spreading fast. We have added over 100 students and are still growing daily! We are at or near capacity at several grade levels so make sure you come to school before August 1st to complete your paper registration forms if you signed up online. We will be posting enrollment closures soon for several other grade levels.
Note to Returning Students: If your child attended CCA last school year (2021-2022) and you have NOT enrolled them in another school they are still enrolled in our school and will be assigned to the appropriate grade for this new school year.
Our instructional day now is from 7:45am – 3:15pm each day. Car riders can be dropped off in the mornings beginning at 7:15am. Reminder to AM and PM car riders to use Marietta Street to enter through the back gate entrance and follow the road to the back of the school.
We have contacted (or made multiple attempts) all of the applicants for 4K. If we do not hear back from the original 40 applicants by August 1, 2022 we will need to open up slots from our waiting list. Note: We have (2) 4K classrooms with a maximum of 20 students each. 4K students will stay the regular school hours and drop off and pick up in the car rider line. All 4K parents who have enrolled should receive a letter with information later this week or no later than July 27th. This letter has details and information for these students.

With the addition of 7th grade we want to announce the appropriate contact for grade levels and school information. Mr. Kirell is the Elementary Principal serving students in 4K through 5th grade. If you have an elementary student or question regarding elementary please contact him.
