Admission 招生信息

Welcome from the Office of Admission

We thank you for your interest in CAIS and invite you to explore our website, visit us, and to get to know our school and our community. Please come and see our mission to “Embrace Chinese, become your best self and create your place in the world” in practice. In preparing students for the complex world into which they will graduate, our dual language Chinese English immersion program is truly “life changing. world changing.”

With the end of the school year, we reflect on our accomplishments and look ahead to the next challenges and focuses. CAIS enrolled 76 new students for the 2017-18 school year; 39 for our Pre-K program, 19 students for our Kindergarten classes and 12 in grades 1st-8th. One of our proudest achievements is the work we have done on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative (including our guiding statement crafted by a community task force through a year-long process, professional development, and DEI units in our curriculum).

We know that the process of selecting a school for your child can be a daunting one. We are here to help. An overview of the steps involved is available on the Admission Process page. More details about the admission season for the school year 2018-19 will be posted in September 2017. You will find sign-ups for our CAIS 101 events and tours there in early Fall. In the meantime we invite you to complete an online inquiry as a first step. 

We look forward to sharing CAIS with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us at

I invite you in the meantime to take a look at the tweets from our 7th graders recent adventures in Beijing during their three-week Beijing Academy at the end of the school year.

Have a wonderful summer!
