Admission & Program Placement Process

Due to high-demand and limited capacity, CTC is unable to accept all eligible applicants. Program placement is managed by CTC’s Admissions Team and follows these guidelines:
  • All applications are reviewed for residency and credit eligibility (see Eligibility Requirements section for details).
  • If the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of available program seats, CTC will use a lottery process to determine which applicants are placed in the program.

Eligibility Requirements

Credit requirements

Half of the school day is spent in the program, so there is limited time available to catch up on credits.
  • Freshman applying for Jaguar Academy need a minimum of 2 core classes/credits earned, not including health and PE classes/credits.
  • Sophomores must have a minimum of 5 core credits/classes earned, not including health and PE classes/credits.
  • Juniors must have a minimum of 10 core credits/classes earned, not including health and PE classes/credits.

Residency requirements

Students who reside in one of CTC’s associate school districts are eligible to attend and encouraged to apply during the General Admission Period.

Students who reside outside of CTC’s associate school districts are eligible to apply at any time during the application period, but are not eligible for program placement until after April 1 and only if there is availability.

CTC's associate school districts are: Clark-Shawnee Local School District, Greenon Local School District, Northeastern Local School District, Northwestern Local School District, Tecumseh Local School District, Springfield City School, and Southeastern Local School District. f you’re unsure what school district you reside in, use the Ohio Tax Finder lookup.
