How to Apply


Schedule an appointment for a  school tour with the Head of School, Dr. Linda Ellis by emailing lellis@centerforteachingandlearning.comor calling the school office at 832-474-8214. 


Complete an online application with a $250 non-refundable fee. Applications and payments are processed through RenWeb. Click the link to get started.

Note: An online application, fee payment and school tour places the student in the applicant pool. Unless removal is requested, the child's application remains on file, and he or she will be considered for admission to CTL at the appropriate time.


Admission Policy

Up to 10 students in grades PreK and K and 20 students in each multi-age classroom in grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 will be accepted. High school classes will be limited to 20. Applicants are accepted to enroll until all slots are filled.


The admission policy weighs the following criteria:

  • the date of the original application,

  • our assessment of the appropriateness of our program for the student,

  • a sense of how the child will fit in with the rest of the class group,

  • parental support for CTL’s curriculum, and

  • space availability. 


CTL aims to strike a balance in the ratio of boys to girls. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or national or ethnic origin. CTL is a small, non-profit school without the financial resources to provide a special education teacher and separate program for children who may require such services.
