Classroom of the Elite is based on the ongoing light novel series of the same name by Syohgo Kinugasa and illustrator Shunsaku Tomose. Seiji Kishi (Assassination Classroom, Yuki Yuna is a Hero) is directing the project at Lerche, with Kazuaki Morita (Assassination Classroom, Tsukigakirei) providing character designs. Aoi Akashiro (Fuuka, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) is in charge of series composition.
Funimation describes the show as:
Kodo Ikusei Senior High School is a prestigious private school with a nearly 100% acceptance rate to university or employment. On top of that, students have the freedom to bring whatever they want and enjoy state-of-the-art facilities. It seems like a paradise until Kiyotaka Ayanokoji learns the hard way that the school is set up as a hierarchy where only the top students are treated well.
