Palmer Center Admission FAQs

When can I apply?

Applications are open from January until early March each year for the following school year.

How does the review process work?

After the March deadline, our teachers and CTE Director will review every application and accept students we believe will be most successful.

Do I need all As or perfect attendance to be accepted?

No. While grades and attendance are included in the review process, we understand that every student is motivated by different things. For some, CTE is that motivation.

How important is the “statement of interest” on the application?

This is how we get to know who you are, so make it count. We suggest you record a short video about yourself and why you want to be in the program, post it on your private YouTube channel, and include the link in your statement of interest.

What happens if I miss the deadline?

We do accept applications after the March deadline and will review them on a space available basis.

What happens if there are more applications for a program than spaces available?

If there are more accepted applications than spaces available, students will be placed on a waitlist and/or reviewed for their second choice program.
