Welcome from the Office of Admission
First of all, a very warm welcome from the Admissions Office. We thank you for your interest in CAIS during these unprecedented and turbulent times. There is a wealth of information on this website for you to peruse. Our Get to Know CAIS section contains some informative videos on various aspects of our program. Our virtual CAIS 101 and Information sessions will start in October.
In the midst of change, the need for flexibility and nimbleness has been key. As school starts, we have recommenced our weekly saliva testing for all students. All of our staff are fully vaccinated. DPH guidelines and protocols remain in place. Our students have bounced back onto campus with joy, excitement and abundant energy. It is exhilarating.
Under challenging conditions, we continue to be thoughtful, deliberate and keep true to our mission. In preparing students for the complex world into which they will graduate, our dual language Chinese English immersion program continues to be “life changing. world changing.”
We know that the process of selecting a school for your child can be a daunting one, especially doing this virtually. We are here to help. An overview of the steps involved is available on the Admission Process page.
I do hope I will have the opportunity to meet you virtually. While it is not the same as meeting in person or attending a “live” tour or event, we will do our best to represent CAIS authentically to you. In the meantime we invite you to complete an online inquiry as a first step in your CAIS journey.
We look forward to sharing CAIS with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to see you on Zoom, speak on the telephone, or communicate via email.
