JHCS Admissions Structure

JHCS uses a rolling admissions structure with three phases: Early Admissions, Regular Admissions, and Late Admissions.  Key differences are space within each grade level and financial aid availability.  While we welcome late applications, late admissions will depend on grade level openings, course availability, and remaining financial aid budgets.  In contrast, early admissions applicants are assured spots within grade levels, additional financial aid consideration, and first placements in courses that may fill up later in the admissions cycle.
