How to Apply

Community High is a school of choice.

We offer the high school curriculum required to obtain a high school diploma from the state of North Carolina.

Steps to enrollment at CHS: 

  • Students already enrolled in a Buncombe County school are eligible. 
  • Students apply to the Guidance Counselor at their home school.
  • Principals submit a list of interested students to a committee made up of administrators and student services staff.
  • The committee meets at the end of each semester to review the applicants. 
  • Students that could be best served at CHS are offered a spot.

Students can be placed at Community High by the superintendent at other times under special circumstances.

A school bus transports students from their home school to Community High.
