Tours

Chaparral Star Academy has a unique environment and often prospective families want to visit our small community while making a school choice.

Tours are given by appointment on Thursday mornings during the school year and conducted by our wonderful parent ambassador, Jennifer Benavides. Mrs. Benavides will also be able to answer questions you may have about the enrollment process for CSA.

To set up a tour and to arrange your appointment, please directly
 e-mail Jennifer Benavides. 

Please avoid arriving for a tour without a confirmed appointment.  If you need to cancel a tour, please notify Mrs. Benavides immediately.

CSA is on the same testing schedule as local ISD’s.  No tours will be scheduled during STAAR testing, end-of-semester exams, local (e.g. B-O-Y & M-O-Y testing) and national assessments (e.g. PSAT, Readistep).

 

FAQ’s about TOURS

Can my child “shadow” his/her grade level class before we decide on applying to CSA?

Unfortunately, no.  With our 4-hour school day, our quick-paced courses and small class size, we try to limit distractions.  Additionally, FERPA regulations discourage such offerings

My spouse/child cannot be present for the tour – what now?

We frequently have family members schedule separate appointments, sometimes even deciding to take their kids out of their current school for an additional tour!

How long does a tour take?

Tours are blocked in 30 minute increments.  The campus is small so it does not take that long to see all of it.

May I bring my infant/toddler/preschooler on the tour?

Yes, with the understanding that they remain under your control & are able to be reasonably quiet while in the halls.  With our school being small, loud noises in the hallway can easily distract students.

Can I go into a classroom during the tour?

Unfortunately, no.  With our 4-hour school day, our quick-paced courses and small class size, we try to limit distractions.  Additionally, FERPA regulations discourage such offerings

Are there tours over the summer?

Please e-mail Mrs. Benavides to determine if it possible.
